"James, a respected colleague of mine, has outdone himself with The Crash of MH370. Forget the conspiracy theories and the hype, James has gone into extensive research to try and provide some answers. As a pilot myself, his opening sentence from his sister, touched a raw nerve … this could happen to any one of us and we owe it to ourselves and our aviation community at large, to find the truth and ensure this does not happen again. You have done the families of MH370 proud. Thank you James."
The Ultimate Detective Story
By David McKenzie
(A passenger grateful for
capable and intelligent pilots.)
"A complex story made easy to read as well as being the ultimate detective story – even the author has to guess the outcome! Let’s hope the wreckage is eventually found to clear up what really happened.
Not only does the author’s suggested explanation make sense, his recommendations for improving air safety are compelling. This man should be on the board or committee that oversees international air safety."
Informative, Educational, Intriguing
by Julie-Anne Eastlake
"Wow! Gripping, Captivating, Informative, Educational, Intriguing, and makes you want more! Factual and to the point, with Terminology Interpretation for the novice of novices.
Also thrown in is the little snippets of the Author’s personality, obviously a great sense of humour, made me giggle and sometimes burst out in laughter. Having said that, there is always that sadness in the reality that souls were lost and their families are still waiting for closure.
This would have to be the best book that I have read in a very long time. "

The Crash Of MH370 may well be one those ground breaking accidents that change our way of thinking. This book is an analysis of the mystery that is the missing Malaysian Airlines 777, and one of the first to be published after the search concluded.
Unlike previous books about the ghost plane written by well-meaning amateur pilots and journalists, the author is an industry insider; an A380 captain with similar experience to the missing pilot.
It examines the facts, who’s who, the flight and search. The latter half dispels the various theories, provides the author’s best guess as to what happened and delivers a list of thirteen urgent recommendations for the industry.
Rarely do we hear from people within this industry. From pilots and air traffic controllers to crash investigators, their employment contracts stipulate: no media.
That James Nixon has chosen to publish this book within three months of his retirement means we are given a rare chance to peek behind the cockpit door.
