Great title - shame about the cover. Indeed, the content is about as horrible as the prospect of a pilot with no clothes on. However, this is no crew-hotel kiss and tell story, it's about accidents. Airliner disasters have proved a profitable publishing topic over the years and David Beaty pulls no punches with both cockpit crew and management in exposing thinking patterns behind a number of well-known airliner crashes. For example, airlines become extremely agitated at the mere suggestion that pilots enjoy a drink or three, yet the American pilot of a Japanese Airlines cargo boarded his DC-8 blind drunk and predictably ended up in a mass of flames and wreckage not far from his takeoff point. In a true spirit of flightdeck denial, his colleagues who were at the bar at the same time said they hadn't seen him drink a thing. However, witnesses not known to him personally spoke otherwise. The entire crew were wiped out. David Beaty manages to avoid the mundane implications ! of Cockpit Resource Management cliché and has produced a great read that will entertain both ATP's and PPL's. Excellent.
