Summary
"On June 8, 1995, just before Flight 597 was about to take off from an airport in Georgia, the crew and passengers heard a loud bang. Within seconds, thick black smoke filled the cabin. One minute after the pilot called for help, a team of aviation firefighters arrived on the scene, ready to battle the deadly blaze and rescue the people trapped inside the plane. Look inside to find out more about these courageous firefighters and how they use their quick thinking and expert skills to fight fires on airplanes. You'll also go behind the scenes to learn how aviation firefighters train for their jobs so that they are ready to spring into action at a moment's notice"--Back cover
