The plane, a Southern Airways DC-9-31, had been carrying 81 passengers and four crew members en route to Atlanta when it entered a massive thunderstorm cell that turned into a dangerous cocktail of rain, hail, and lightning. Forced down onto a highway, the plane cut a swath of devastation through the small town of New Hope, breaking apart and killing bystanders on the ground before coming to rest in Hurst's front yard.
Ultimately, only 22 people survived, and urgent questions immediately arose: What caused the pilots to fly into the storm instead of away from it? Could the crash have been prevented? Southern Storm addresses these issues and more, offering an insider's look at this disaster and the systemic overhauls that followed it.

I found this book hard to put down. Samme is a good writer and I look forward to more of her books. I can not imagine the research that went into compiling this true story. And Keith was a pleasure to listen to. So often a reader can ruin a story. Not Keith. Thanks for a good story and a pleasant one to listen to.
