On a hot August afternoon in 1995, ASA 529 on a routine flight from Atlanta to Gulfport, Mississippi came to a skiddering, metal grinding stop in an Alabama hayfield. Moments later, it burst into flames and the lives of its 29 passengers and crew changed forever. Incredibly, most aboard survived though some were horribly burned, others suffering life threatening injuries. In this excellent docudrama presentation, writer Gary Pomarantz takes us into the personal lives of passanger and crew, both prior to the flight and in the days, months and years afterword. We meet the technician at Hamilton Standard who worked on the prop, the failure of which lead to the crash. The pilot, first officer, cabin attendant and most of the passengers become well known and their fates make for riveting listening. Though not a fan of abridgements, I found this one did not leave me wonting for facts obviously deleted from the orginal text. Narration by Boyd Gaines was excellent.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The story is poorly written and the narrator was ok but the book was so bad it didn't matter
