Publisher's Summary

The true stories of mental illness, mass murder, and aviation disaster at a US Air Force base. A brilliant narration of two separate mass-casualty incidents that occurred within days of each other at Fairchild Air Force Base. Using the words of the people who experienced the tragedies, the audiobook provides an in-depth look at the before, during, and after of a preventable "active shooter" incident and an avoidable fatal plane crash.
In one tragic week at Fairchild Air Force Base, an "active shooter" terrorized the base hospital, and a talented but reckless pilot crashed a B-52 bomber near the flight line. Both fatal tragedies had been repeatedly predicted by numerous airmen and mental health professionals. In "vivid and thoroughly researched detail", Warnings Unheeded delivers an unprecedented, revealing look at the events that led to the twin tragedies.
The audiobook follows an "active shooter" as he progresses toward his crime and dispels the myth that these incidents are random acts of violence committed without warning by otherwise normal individuals. In a parallel account, Warnings Unheeded tells the story of a veteran pilot who was known for exceeding the maneuvering limits of his B-52 bomber. His reckless flying not only endangered the lives of his crew, but also the air show spectators who gathered to watch him perform. When attempts to ground the pilot were unsuccessful, several aviators refused to fly with him and "predicted the worst air show disaster in history."
Warnings Unheeded is a unique true crime audiobook authored by Andy Brown, the man who ended the hospital killing spree, and is a result of more than seven years of writing and research. Brown "masterfully weaves" the stories together and intersperses them with chapters revealing the preparations he made that enabled him to end a pistol-versus-rifle gunfight with a 70-yard shot from his handgun. Brown also writes of his experience with the aftermath of the shooting and encourages others to learn from his mistakes when it comes to dealing with the effects of trauma.
These empowering stories are exhaustively researched and presented in an objective narrative style that shows what can happen when authorities become complacent, when the precursors of violence are ignored, and when the lessons from history are forgotten.

My review of Warnings Unheeded by Ssgt Andy Brown

First of all let me state for the record I Have never met Andy and we are not related! We were both however USAF Security Policemen! We both were stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base at different times. I own and have read his book, several times over! In 20 years as an Air Force Cop I have never needed to either draw my M9 or chamber a round in my M-16! Andy not only had to draw but also engage an armed mass murderer at a USAF hospital! In addition it’s the story of an out of control AF B52 pilot responsible for the death of his whole crew at an air show at Fairchild AFB! His in-depth research is worthy of an NCIS episode! I whole heartedly recommend this Audio book! SSgt F. Brown USAF ret. 377th Security Police Group.
