Does anyone have any good recommendations for books on air disasters? Everything I find is either too technical and not good for reading, or only covers the top ten disasters.

It think the 'Air Disaster' series by Macarthur Job and Matthew Tesch are one of the best. I got all volumes 1,2 and 3. There's also a 4th one about the prop era but I haven't got that one.




 Big thumbs up

I have to second that, the Air Disaster series is great. A very informative set of books.

A good one that I have read is "The Black Box." It talks about 26 well known air disasters. The main point of the book is cockpit voice recorder accounts of in-flight accidents. It has the transmissions in the cockpit, cabin, and ATC. I really think its a great book, especially with the transmissions because you can make your own points and conclusion of the possibly cause.

Hope this helps.
