Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quite Disappointing and Hardly Any Photos I agree that providing background stories for characters involved does flesh out the story, but this book provides too much of that and not enough on the crash itself. There is nothing regarding the cause or investigation of the crash. The only photos are 15 of servicemen/women or family members. This is not a "can't put it down" kind of book. It is fairly well written, and the author seems to have done a lot of work on it from the "people" point of view. The book is also increased in size by a large chapter at the end on Gander 9/11 and another one on a shipwreck in 1942, and although both are interesting and well-written, they have nothing to do with the Arrow Air crash. I wanted to be informed as to what failed on the Arrow Air jet, what caused the crash, etc. and this book doesn't do that.
