This study of the Boeing 737 airliner focuses on US Airways Flight 427, which crashed in March 1994, near Pittsburgh, killing all 132 aboard. The author relates how that crash kicked off years of painstaking research by the NTSB, the FAA, and Boeing that finally uncovered a minor, yet lethal flaw that had been designed into the aircraft.
