Recently Retired A380 Airline Captain
Explores the Mystery of the Doomed Airliner
The Crash Of MH370 may well be one those ground breaking accidents that change our way of thinking. Currently in the final stages of production, this book is an analysis of the mystery that is the missing Malaysian Airlines 777, and one of the first to be published after the search concluded.
Unlike previous books about the ghost plane written by well-meaning amateur pilots and journalists, the author is an industry insider; an A380 captain with similar experience to the missing pilot.
It examines the facts, who’s who, the flight and search. The latter half dispels the various theories, provides the author’s best guess as to what happened and delivers a list of thirteen urgent recommendations for the industry.
Rarely do we hear from people within this industry. From pilots and air traffic controllers to crash investigators, their employment contracts stipulate: no media.
That James Nixon has chosen to publish this book within three months of his retirement means we are given a rare chance to peek behind the cockpit door.
An easy read, yet thought provoking; the book will be eagerly awaited by followers of air crash investigations, people interested in information about the crash but who have been confused by fact and fiction.
Members of the aviation industry who are constrained by confidentiality contracts will welcome reading a book by one of their own at last.
