I'm sure there are several A.Net members who own the excellent series of 4 books titled "Air Disaster" by aviation author Mac Job.
These books are "must-reads", IMO, if you're an aviation fan. Volume 4 (from 2001) features all prop-liner accidents, including the infamous "Grand Canyon Collision" of 1956.
Each chapter contain top-notch illustrations and massively-detailed text about the accident featured.
Many of these chapters are worth reading multiple times, with the narrative style having a way of putting you right in the middle of the impending disaster, minute by minute. Kudos to Mr. Job and staff.
What "Air Disaster" chapters are the most engaging/interesting/riveting, as far as you are concerned?
If my opinion means a hill of beans -- I'd vote for these two chapters as the best (in a crop of really good ones):
1.) The Vol. 2 chapter on BA
009 (June 24, 1982), when all 4 engines on the Boeing 747-200 stopped running at FL370, turning the Jumbo into a 400-ton glider! Incredible stuff.
2.) A Vol. 1 chapter on the 1977 Canary Islands crash, claiming 583 lives (with two Boeing 747s colliding on the runway at Tenerife). Some terrific "what it must have looked like" illustrations are presented in this downright-scary chapter.
What I'd enjoy seeing/reading in the future would be an updated "Volume 5", featuring the November 2001 crash of American 587, plus the Singapore Airlines 006 Boeing 747 (Tropical Megatop) disaster of October 2000, and a chapter on EgyptAir 990.
Chapters on the four separate hijackings of September 11, 2001, would also make riveting accounts (per the M. Job detailed style), I'm sure.
