The 747 that went up whole and came down in 876 pieces invaded every part of my life. My only consolation is that, without being able to turn around, she never saw behind her the giant hole where the rest of the aircraft should have been—an oblong oval opening to the tumbling sky, bordered by torn cables, shredded aluminum aircraft skin, sheared beams and spars, and ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mark Berry's book, not only because we are friends and went to school together, but also because I have lived a life parallel to his, both of us climbing the ladder in aviation at around the same time. He is a very talented writer who uses his pain and loss to create captivating stories, not just this one, but also "Pushing Leaves Toward the Sun" and "Street Justice". Keep writing, Mark!

Mark and I both flew for TWA and currently
