The uncertain fates of Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and Glenn Miller have fascinated readers and aviation historians ever since they disappeared. Even today, more than half a century after their final flights, what happened to them is still the subject of speculation, conspiracy theory and controversy. This has prompted Roy Conyers Nesbit to reinvestigate their stories and to write this perceptive, level-headed and gripping study. Using testimony from new witnesses and hitherto undisclosed public records, he seeks to explain why they were reported missing: believed killed . He describes why American aviatrix Amelia Earhart vanished in the Pacific on her round-the-world flight in 1937, what caused the death of Britain s aviation heroine Amy Johnson over the Thames estuary in 1941, and what really killed band-leader Glenn Miller on his doomed flight to Paris in 1944. And he applies the same expert forensic eye to other tragic aerial mysteries of the period including the flying-boat crash that claimed the life of the Duke of Kent in Scotland in 1942. This classic study, issued here for the first time in paperback, will be fascinating reading for students of aviation history and for anyone who is intrigued by tales of flights into the unknown.

This is a very interesting book that goes into different famous aircraft crashes over the years. It covers Amelia Earheart, Amy Johnson, the Duke of Kent, Glenn Miller and a section on the Bristol Beufants. The author has obviously spent a lot of time researching each disappearance and has an extensive knowledge of flight due to being a navigator in the RAF.

GoodReads, Kristin Davison

It is about the author's research into the vanishing of Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson, Glenn Miller and the duke of Kent. Additionally there are some investigations into various Beauforts that vanished in WWII- the author was Beaufort aircrew. I found th conclusion about Glenn Miller fascinating and creditable , and that searches are still continuing to locate some of the aircraft concerned remarkable.
