Autorenkommentar

The scariest in-flight book you'll ever read!
London Evening Standard (David Sexton): "Airport books are misnamed. They're all about ambition, sex, money and murder. They're not about flying at all. A swiz, really. Now passengers have the chance to buy a proper airport book. 'The Black Box' is a good deal more gripping than all those silly thrillers. It presents the unadorned, official transcripts of the final cockpit conversations from 28 'in-flight accidents... Surely there can be no better book to while away the boredom of your next flight."

New York Times Magazine: "Searching for an in-flight read that will command your attention during those long, boring international flights? Consider 'Thke Black Box,' a scary new collection of cockpit-voice-recorder transcripts taken from doomed, downed and troubled airplanes."

New York Times Book Review (John Gross): "'The Black Box' is an undeniably compelling workl.... Once the book has caught your attention, it is hard to throw off its spell.! "

Einleitungssatz
I have chosen to lead the collection with this CVR tape because it shows how a cockpit crew, by their skill and resourcefulness, saved the passengers from what was otherwise certain disaster. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Having flown more in the last two and a half years than I ever did in my whole life previously, I've become an accustomed but nervous flyer, and I have to say that I find this book sort of...creepy. Once you've picked it up, it's next to impossible to put down, but you also wish you hadn't picked it up in the first place.
For a start, those who want access (for professional or other reasons) to cockpit voice recorder transcripts can get them over the internet where they're available, and I'm sure there's nothing in this book that isn't available elsewhere. Plus, other reviewers are correct in observing that NTSB transcripts are generally more accurate and specific and less Edited than the ones in this book.
Secondly, I don't know if I like the idea of being charged money for this kind of thing. I wouldn't mind so much if the money were going to the survivors, or the families of the dead, but isn't there something grisly and voyeuristic about paying money to read what are more often than not the last words of desperate men? "More often than not" because most of the accidents in this book involve fatalities. It's the same kind of gruesome curiosity that led to the notorious faked transcript of the Challenger shuttle's last moments (the authentic transcript lasts up until the point of the explosion; the detachment of the cabin from the rest of the airframe would have cut the power to the CVR, so anything you've read that purports to be from beyond that point is very likely inauthentic.)
Having said all that, I'm not immune to the fascination exercised by this stuff. I have nothing but respect for the courage and skill of airline crews. It's just that for some reason, I wish this book had never been published. I think that a more appropriate tribute to the dead would be higher standards of safety and maintenance. Anyway, it's too late now; but why do I feel sort of _soiled_ whenever I've been reading this stuff?

Von Ein Kunde am 25. Juni 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Es hat mich schon immer interessiert, was im Cockpit einer Maschine vor sich geht, wenn diese abstürzt - ob der drohende Absturz erkannt wird, ob dort Panik herrscht oder Mut. Diese Fragen beantwortet das Buch. Der Verfasser gibt die Voice-Recorder-Aufzeichnungen von 28 Abstürzen wieder, darunter auch von so spektakulären Unglücksflügen wie dem der Birgen Air vor der Dominikanischen Republik, der El-Al-Maschine über Amsterdam oder des Space Shuttle Challenger. Vor den Transkripten erklärt der Autor anschaulich und auch für Laien nachvollziehbar, warum es zum Absturz kam. Fachkennntisse sind nicht erforderlich (obwohl die Lektüre von Crichton's AIRFRAME eine gute Vorbereitung darstellt), wohl aber gute Englisch-Kenntnisse. Die Gespräche im Cockpit waren ganz anders, als ich sie mir vorgestellt hatte. Von Panik gab es keine Spur, jedenfalls nicht in den vom Verfasser vorgelegten Texten. Dagegen war ich tief beeindruckt von der Besonnenheit und Professionalität der Teams, die oft buchstäblich bis zum Aufschlag versuchten, den Absturz zu verhindern. Stark beeindruckt war ich auch von den oftmals eher banalen Ursachen für den Crash. Insgesamt sehr spannend und sehr aufschlussreich!

Some of these transcripts are truly gripping, but the book suffers from two fatal flaws:
First, the transcripts seem arbitrarily edited. Some transcripts have a long amount of dialogue included before things go wrong that have no relation to what follows. Others are incomplete and leave out a lot. For example, PSA Flight 182 is cut off right after the midair and leaves out the entire sequence of the crew heroically attempting to get their aircraft under control If you've heard the whole thing, you wonder if they had had more altitude or weren't in landing configuration, if they might not have been able to pull it off. The final "Goodbye, Mother" tears you apart. It seems these transcripts were just thrown together.
The other problem is that while the Editior may be a fine reporter, he doesn't know much about aviation, and some of his attempts to explain what is going on are misleading or inaccurate. For example, his explanation of what "Break" means in a radio transmission when he's attempting to interpret what's going on at that moment is wrong.
This is an interesting book, but it could have been a lot better with a little work.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
The Black Box: All-New Cockpit Voice Recorder Accounts of In-Flight Accidents was an incredible book that dealt with human tragedy, heroism in the face of death, the frailty of human life and the sad reminder of human fallability. I read this book sometimes with a heavy heart, sometimes with a sense of relief and always with the knowledge that anyone can experience an aviation disaster; not just "someone else". The stories related in this book were explicit, and I think that is the only way they should be represented since this lends to a feel of 'being there' in the cockpit with the crew. On an emotional level, this book literally made me cry. I thought of all the people who lost their life in these disasters, and I wondered what they were thinking when they knew the plane was in trouble or going down. It was a sadness for them; for what could have been. For plans and hopes and dreams that literally and metaphorically went up in flames. I finished this book with a heavy heart and an undefineable sadness that still haunts me even now. Read this book, but be prepared to be emotionally drained and to spend some time contemplating your own mortality.
