The base psychiatrist warned his staff about the airman.
"This is the kind of patient who...one day...he's going to come back and kill you."
Aircrews pleaded with their leadership to ground a dangerous pilot.
"We predicted the worst air-show disaster in history when we found out that he was gonna fly."
Have you ever heard someone say that a tragedy struck without warning?
The precursors of violence and tragedy are revealed in this true story of mental illness, mass murder, and aviation disaster.
On June 20, 1994, a former airman sought vengeance with a rifle at the Fairchild Air Force Base hospital. Four days later, a rogue pilot crashed a B-52 outside of Fairchild's Nuclear Weapon Storage Area. Both tragedies had been predicted and repeatedly warned about.
This audiobook was written by Andy Brown, the man who ended the hospital killing spree. Brown's narrative focuses mainly on others, including the heroic life-saving actions of hospital patrons and staff, but he also describes the preparations he made which enabled him to win a pistol-versus-rifle gunfight, as well as his own experience with the effects of trauma.
This unique true-crime audiobook is densely packed with details garnered from medical records, police reports, and first-hand accounts obtained from journal entries, letters, witness statements, and personal interviews. These empowering stories detail the events that lead up to the tragedies, the heroic response, and the aftermath.

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.
