About this Item

"This work began at 6:14 p.m., August 2, 1985. I was in Dallas, just sitting down to dinner, when word came in over Channel 8 that a plane had reportedly gone down at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Within minutes the news was confirmed and I was on my way to the scene. During the next few hellish hours I was plunged into a drama so compelling that it demanded to be chronicled in the form of a full-length book. For better or worse, I decided to write it." This book has 162 pages and is illustrated. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 063278

About this title


Describes the crash of Delta flight 191 on August 2, 1985 at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, explains how windshear caused the tragedy, and argues that the federal government could do more to protect air passengers

From Library Journal:

Chandler chronicles the human story beyond the headlines of the crash of Delta Flight 191. The Lockheed Tristar crashed in Dallas in 1985, the worst year in history for airline tragedies. The anatomy of the disaster is revealed through discussions of wind shear, the cockpit and ground voice record, the crash itself, and the hospital triage. The grisly details of body identification, legal responsibilities and financial settlements, and equally painful matters all are covered. The book delves further into the realities of after-crash life, death, and suffering than others have. Well-researched by a skilled journalist, Fire & Rain is recommended. William A.
