Don’t look to David Soucie’s book for a dramatic play by play of the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappearance. Instead, we get a good read that emphasizes the process of examining the huge amount of evidence and the long and still ongoing time line of the lost Flight 370.
As a crash investigator and aviator, Soucie brings the wayward observer’s eye to the events and news sound bites as they emerged to the world on that fateful day in March, 2014. The reader learns a lot about the parallels of this air tragedy and the Air France flight 447 accident in 2009 and other air crashes. Using the Bayesian formula for giving weight to pieces of evidence, Soucie maps out an accident algorithm for taking the information, organizing and weighing the validity and the source. The author weaves his own experiences as an air crash investigator as he absorbs the unlikely fact that this airplane, may be lost forever. Along the way he explains the whys and wherefores of safety implementations with the FAA and makes his own points for safety recommendations for future flights. Armed with what facts we know, Soucie does bring his very specific idea of what could have happened to the flight, in his detailed time line, very much his own hypothesis, backed up by explanations of other similar airline catastrophes. A good book that brings the process of investigating an air crash forward as well as the the investigation itself.
