CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest offers a gripping and definitive account of the disappearance of Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 in March 2014. On March 8, 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared with barely a trace, carrying 239 people onboard - seemingly vanishing into the dark night. The airplane´s whereabouts and fate would quickly become one of the biggest aviation mysteries of our time.... Richard Quest, CNN´s aviation correspondent, was one of the leading journalists covering the story. In a coincidence, Quest had interviewed one of the two pilots a few weeks before the disappearance. It is here that he begins his gripping account of those tense weeks in March, presenting a fascinating chronicle of an international search effort that, despite years of searching and tens of millions of dollars spent, has failed to find the plane. Quest dissects what happened in the hours following the plane´s disappearance and chronicles the days and weeks of searching, which led to nothing but increasing despair. He takes apart the varying responses from authorities and the discrepancies in reports, the wide range of theories, the startling fact that the plane actually turned around and flew in the opposite direction, and what solutions the aviation industry must now implement to ensure it never happens again. What emerges is a riveting chronicle of a tragedy that continues to baffle everyone from aviation experts to satellite engineers to politicians - and which to this day worries the traveling public that it could happen again. ungekürzt.

In 1956 a plane bearing mysterious cargo takes off from a small airport outside Los Angeles and disappears into a raging storm. Nearly 60 years later, while flying over the Sierra Nevada, retired military assassin turned civilian flight instructor and would-be Buddhist Cordell Logan catches a glint of sunlight on metal and spots what appears to be an aircraft wreckage. His life will never be the same. Logan and his beautiful ex-wife, Savannah, plan a reconciliation in posh Lake Tahoe. But upon landing in the Ruptured Duck, his beloved aging Cessna, Logan agrees to put those plans on hold when he´s asked to help guide a search-and-rescue team to the remote, mountainous crash site. The team finds not only a long-missing airplane, with the mummified remains of its pilot still at the controls, but something much more recent and far more sinister: the body of a young man, shot to death only hours earlier. Someone has beaten the rescuers to the site and will clearly stop at nothing to profit from what the plane was carrying - including kidnapping and threatening to kill Savannah if Logan refuses to help them carry out their getaway plans. With the clock ticking and the love of his life in peril, Logan is drawn into a vexing vortex as personal and potentially deadly as any he´s ever known. Voodoo Ridge is a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride filled with the kind of unexpected twists, full-throttle action, and wry humor that won Freed´s Flat Spin and Fangs Out, the first two installments in the Cordell Logan mystery series, rave reviews and a legion of loyal fans. ungekürzt.

What would you do if I told you that you could easily build wealth? That´s right! You can become a self-made millionaire, as long as you are fully motivated and are willing to work hard for it. Any individual, including yourself, is able to bring in a large amount of money and live the lifestyle he or she has always dreamed of. Mind you, when I talk about being motivated, I´m not talking about wanting money - that´s not true motivation. Every person out there wants more money, right? The difference between wanting money and being motivated by money involves the willingness to take the necessary actions in order to make it. You see, when an individual tells me that he or she wants more money, I notice he or she isn´t willing to do the work that is needed. People want to live that lavish lifestyle, but they are not willing to wake up early and work late until the sun goes down. They want to put in as few hours as possible so that they can spend time at home or on vacations. Sure, that type of people can make money, but they aren´t going to become multimillionaires. If you are looking for secrets to becoming a multimillionaire without putting in a large amount of work, you have come to the wrong place...the wrong place on planet Earth, because there is no such thing as becoming a millionaire without hard work, unless you win the lottery. Becoming a millionaire is all about doing the jobs that others stay away from. It is about getting on airplanes, getting up early, staying up late, missing your family, and putting a lot of thought into your work. The more people you reach out to and serve, the more money you are going to make. The more people who benefit from the company you have created, the more money you will earn. If you want money, you´re never going to have it unless you´re lucky. You have to be motivated enough to push yourself.... ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Bret Kennedy.

A fascinating exploration of how humans and machines fail - leading to air disasters from Amelia Earhart to MH370 - and how the lessons learned from these accidents have made flying safer. In The Crash Detectives, veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes us inside crash investigations from the early days of the jet age to the present, including the search for answers about what happened to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. As Negroni dissects what happened and why, she explores their common themes and, most important, what has been learned from them to make planes safer. Indeed, as Negroni shows, virtually every aspect of modern pilot training, airline operation, and airplane design has been shaped by lessons learned from disaster. Along the way she also details some miraculous saves, when quick-thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people alive. Tying in aviation science, performance psychology, and extensive interviews with pilots, engineers, human factors specialists, crash survivors, and others involved in accidents all over the world, The Crash Detectives is an alternately terrifying and inspiring book that might just cure your fear of flying and will definitely make you a more informed passenger. ungekürzt.

Unforgotten Hero tells the captivating life story of Second Lieutenant Jimmy L. Escalle, a US Air Force fighter pilot who became missing in action during the Korean War. Growing up in a small farming town in California´s San Joaquin Valley during the 1930s and 1940s, Jim was a devoted son, a caring older brother, a talented athlete, and a young man of moral character who always put others first. He started high school as the Second World War was at its peak, and graduated during a time of transition within America and around the world. He had always wanted to fly airplanes someday, and with the introduction of jet propulsion during his high school years, he dreamed of becoming a jet pilot. Called to serve his country after the Korean War began, his dream became a reality when he joined the Air Force and eventually got the opportunity to fly the F-86 Sabre, regarded as the most advanced jet fighter of its time. Soon after arriving in Korea he went on his first missions, which were MiG Alley sweeps. However, since Jim was assigned to a fighter-bomber squadron, the majority of his combat missions were air-to-ground. These were the most dangerous missions. In Korea, more pilots had been killed or listed as MIA due to being shot down by ground fire rather than enemy aircraft. For Jim, this fact was realized only five weeks before the armistice was signed. He paid the ultimate price for freedom when he disappeared while on a combat mission over North Korea and was never seen or heard from again. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: William Dougan.
