1 Rayner, Jay Star Dust Falling : the Story of the Plane That Vanished
0143013491 / 9780143013495; NEW - In August 1947 in the High Andes, one of the earliest long-haul passanger aircrafts, called the Star Dust, disappeared en route to Santiago, Chile. It left behind only questions: Was it sabotage? Was there a hoard of gold on board? What was the meaning of the radio operator's mysterious final message before the airwaves fell silent? Only with the discovery of the wreckage in January, 2000 could those questions at last begin to be answered. In this fascinating and compelling account, Jay Rayner recreates the events surrounding the loss of Star Dust and its discovery fifty years later, piecing together the lives of the characters involved. Combining the glamour of the early days of long-haul flight with solving one of aviations greatest mysteries, Star Dust Falling is an exhilirating and moving read. 261 pages including 8 pages of photographs. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
