 About the Book 

The twin jet plane en route to Denver from Hong Kong is merely a green radar blip half an hour off the California coast when the call comes through to air traffic control:Socal Approach, this is TransPacific 545. We have an emergency. The pilot requests priority clearance to land. Then comes the bombshell - he needs forty ambulances on the runway.But nothing prepares the rescue workers for the carnage they witness when they enter the plane.Ninety-four passengers are injured. Three dead. The interior cabin virtually destroyed.What happened on board Flight TPA 545?At a moment when the issue of safety and death in the skies is paramount in the public mind, Airframe delivers an unprecedented look at the commercial airline industry in crisis - an extraordinary mixture of white knuckle suspense and scientific research that has been the hallmark of Michael Crichtons thrillers since The Andromeda Strain.
