While Quasar's approach is more clinical, Myhre - a Vietnam War vet - writes with real passion. Both have different opinions of the eventual fate that befell Flight 19, based largely on their contrasting interpretations of those harrowing radio messages.
Despite Myhre's conviction, I simply don't believe that the flight would have dispersed in the manner in which he claims. He boldly outlines the probable crash site of each plane, by (in my view anyway) possibly laying too great an emphasis on purported sightings of flares, fires and even liferafts on what was, clearly, a long, confused, dark and stormy night.
But hell, who am I to quibble? This guy has, over the past 30 years, moved heaven and earth to try and solve the greatest aviation mystery in history - and could well have succeeded.
For me, the big question is what would have resulted had authors of the calibre of Quasar and Myhre delved into this modern mystery of the skies when Bermuda Triangle fever was all the rage back in the 1970s?
Would the 'Triangle of Doom' still have carried such credence today? I very much doubt it...
One final intriguing footnote: both authors mention the curious case of radioman George Paonessa who - bizarre as it may seem - could somehow have been a Flight 19 survivor. If either can stand up this possibility that clearly makes a book in itself.
Investigations into Paonessa are continuing so we may still not have heard the last word on this unique and unsettling episode.
I feel the reader of this book should have a background in flying to stay 100% in the reading.
