Written by a former British Airways First Officer, Stanley Stewart, who has spoken firsthand with pilots and crews involved in all the incidents recorded here. This book offers a unique insight into how crews responded to crisis and what really happened.

Flying is one of the safest forms of modern transport, and as a means of traveling quickly over long distances its role is unsurpassed. Modern airline pilots and their crews are trained to the highest possible standards and endeavour to make the passenger’s journey as smooth and comfortable as possible.

However, things can still go terribly wrong.

Emergency is a collection of true stories about such events, where disaster seems imminent. Yet each situation is concluded without loss of life thanks to the skill of the pilots and their crews, whose bravery and resourcefulness have earned them well deserved commendations.

Written by a former British Airways Captain, Stanley Stewart, who has spoken at first hand with the pilots and crews involved in all the incidents here, the book offers a unique insight into what really happened: not the passengers’ eye-view, which in many cases is already documented, but the view from the flight deck of the aircraft itself.

Using transcripts of actual flight deck conversations and communications with the ground to confer immediacy as well as authenticity, the author relates the of the BAC1-11 whose left windscreen blew out at 23,000 feet, almost taking the pilot with it, and the Boeing 747 en route between London and Nairobi which stalled, rolled ninety-four degrees to the left and lost 10, 000 feet when a crazed cockpit intruder grabbed the controls.

These are just two unbelievable incidents from which everybody emerges alive. Yet for the passenger, this is a remarkably reassuring book, which shows how the capable crews of modern airlines can react quickly and effectively to bizarre situations not covered by training manuals or the flight simulator.
