No worries, Mike.

I bought a copy the first time around. The content was of great interest to me. Not from a morbid point of view, but tracking the history leading up to the crash.

- Reading about the history of the Beechcraft Bonanza from the drafting board, and also the origins of the plane the boys died in.

- Going on a virtual tour of the region, visiting many of the places that were visited in the days leading up to Clear Lake.

- Getting a more in focus view of Roger Peterson and his life. Many people forget that although he may or may not have been the cause of the crash, he was a well liked kid with a young wife.

- Investigating some of anomalies to do with the crash. There were quite a few things I didn't know about, such as the radar picking the plane up just before it crashed.

I'd recommend the book to anyone who enjoys aircraft investigations, and the history of Rock'N'Roll in general.
