Jack threw down the newspaper with a sigh. He couldn’t look at it any more. The witnesses. The experts. The photos of the wreckage. It was all too much. Not that there was much left to photograph.

Australair Flight 779, a routine commercial flight, had come down into one of the outlying Solomon Islands only two hours into the journey.

They admitted reviewing the audio transmissions between the flight and control, but confirmed it couldn’t explain the actions of the pilot.
