Lost: True Stories of Canadian Aviation Tragedies by Shirlee Smith Matheson

What happened to Johnny Bourassa, a former World War II air force hero, en route from Bathurst to Yellowknife?Where is the crew of the famous Stalins Falcons? Are there really haunted flight paths in the west over the Canadian Cordillera?Since the earliest days of Canadian air travel there have been ghostly tales, unexplained sightings, and mysterious accidents and disappearances.Now to excite our curiosity and sense of wonder, award-winning author and aviation buff Shirlee Smith Matheson brings the best of these often inexplicable tales together in Lost: True Stories of Canadian Aviation Tragedies.This compelling collection of stories chronicles intriguing aviation anomalies from the shores of Labrador to the British Columbia coast and beyond our aerial borders to describe Canadian participation in bringing resolution to more far-reaching aviation mysteries and disasters. Without exception, the stories are offered in a spirit of respect and reverence for the many lost souls of the flying fraternityFrom the appearance of underwater phantoms to the disappearance of hockey heroes and veteran northern pilots, these tales of flights and flight plans that have gone terribly wrong all have three things in common - they are true, tragic, and defy human comprehension. Matheson meticulously researched this book in echoing airport hangars, hushed airline offices, and the private homes of key players, surviving family members, and flying associates.
