The book that inspired the acclaimed feature film Pilot Error, Angle of Attack is based on eight years of research into the 2009 loss of Air France 447 on a night flight from Rio to Paris. Based on more than 300 interviews, this book tells how an Airbus 330 went from cruise altitude to the bottom of the South Atlantic in 264 seconds. Lessons learned from this event have dramatically continue to reshape commercial aviation and have renewed emphasis on hands on pilot training in our automation age. A book for pilots and passengers alike, this up to the minute look at aviation safety shows how lessons learned in aviation can benefit many other industries. The book also tells the story of the French aviators central to this timely aviation drama.

I researched the co-author of this book, and I found out he is a liar who brainwashed his kids to hate their mothers. Shem Malmquist also has no experience as a real accident investigator. Just Google "Shem Malmquist Lies" to find out the real truth about this guy.
