Overview
WE ARE GOING IN is the story of the midair collision over the Grand Canyon in 1956, in which all 128 persons aboard lost their lives. It is a search for the truth told largely as a documentary, presenting some of the author's theories about what happened and providing generous supportive evidence or proof for each of them. The author also repudiates a number of longstanding beliefs, by re-examining the physical evidence and drawing on testimony and reasoning. Along with his emphasis on determining the course of events on the day of the disaster, he has written WE ARE GOING IN with heartfelt compassion, and because of this the book is not only informative but also dramatic and moving. The author's style moves back and forth between mundane or technical subjects, and the grave, terrible circumstances and events that caused the accident, interspersing these with many compassionate sentiments about the people involved. He also offers surprisingly pertinent, compelling insights into the human psyche and the role of fate in the unfolding of events. The author presents many simple facts and special terms and concepts pertaining to aviation; with a fuller understanding of airplanes and flying, the reader cannot help but find a better grasp of the tragedy. On the other hand, for the reader who may prefer to experience the story more purely as a drama, the Foreword includes an outline of where most of the technical sections are. The book is written in such a way that these can be skipped without disrupting the continuity or the substance of the story. Whichever path the reader chooses to follow through the book, he is sure to come away with renewed reverence for mankind.
