ISBN: 9780996736022 Géneros: 12:HBW:Military history;12:KNG:Transport industries;12:WGM:Aircraft: general interestSinopsis: Passenger planes are crashing three and four times a month in 1951 just as Americans are beginning to fly. Then, a loaded plane disappears in the night and can&#39,t be found. Panic and frustration reach all the way to the White House. Twenty-six are killed in the most spectacular crash that no one heard on a mountain frosted with snow and fog. Fourteen survivors are the largest group of plane crash victims to be lost and stranded in North America. The stewardess holds a baby in her arms until it dies. They huddle beneath a parachute tent, arguing over food and how to get out. One commits a dastardly criminal act upon the dead. When rescuers don&#39,t arrive after 40 hours, a hero passenger stumbles out of the snow-filled woods to find help from a farmer&#39,s wife with a secret deadly threat of her own. Distracted by blazing headlines, crash tourists, and a federal probe, simple farm families are intertwined with urban crash survivors leading up to more tragedy on the plane crash mountain. Hang on and Fly is a dramatic tale of the most incredible year of aviation disasters that made Americans plane crash jumpy. Passengers in rope seatbelts are eaten by sharks, a pilot with heart disease flies into a hill, three crashes close a major airport, a lost pilot mistakes Lake Ontario for the Atlantic. It&#39,s the origin of our belief that we&#39,re safest in the back of the plane. It&#39,s the beginning of modern plane crash investigations, inspired Hollywood&#39,s airplane disaster movie genre, and caused safety regulations we all take for granted today. Journalist Tim Lake tells the gripping story of America&#39,s first budget airlines as only he can. His family was there._,
