Summary:
"In July 1967, when a Piedmont Airlines Boeing 727 collided with a Cessna 310 over Hendersonville, North Carolina, killing 82 people, the industry was in crisis. But the National Transportation Safety Board's probe into the crash was flawed from the start. This book reveals the true story of the investigation: what was left out and why."--
