Mayday! Mayday! Aircraft Crashes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 1920-2000 Jeff Wadley and Dwight McCarter Since the dawn of aviation, more than fifty aircraft have crashed in the Great Smoky Mountains. This book details all of those known incidents from 1920 to 2000, including those that occurred within the area before the establishment of the National Park in 1934. Jeff Wadley and Dwight McCarter, who have been involved in search-and-rescue missions in the Smokies for decades, have researched official documents and newspaper archives and conducted extensive interviews with survivors, family members, and eyewitnesses to record not only tragedies but also triumphs of survival. The authors tell how the earliest known plane crashes in the Smokies were of the single-engine Curtis "Jenny" biplanes flown by young air aces during the World War I era. In the years since, the Smokies have claimed private planes, military jets, helicopters, and even a hot air balloon. These disasters arose from numerous causes--from fuel depletion and icing to "dare-deviling" or simply flying too low. Wadley and McCarter attest to the difficult duties of search-and-rescue teams in the most remote areas of the park. Of 127 persons involved in crashes, only 56 survived. Readers will be touched by these accounts--such as that of two small children who survived a December 1977 crash that killed their father and older sister. Mayday! Mayday! offers both cautionary tales for pilots who fly above these ridges and seasoned advice to those who search for victims. The Smokies have been called by some another Bermuda Triangle; this book explains why and reminds us that no skies are entirely friendly. The Authors: Jeff Wadley is a lieutenant colonel in the Tennessee Civil Air Patrol who serves as a mission coordinator and trainer in the Smokies. Dwight McCarter served as a backcountry ranger in the park for over twenty years and is the author of Lost! A Ranger's Journal of Search and Rescue in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Do you know the etymology of the word mayday? It comes from the French m'aidez (pronounced much like the English word mayday). It literally translates to ''help me.'' Whenever we use the word or send out a mayday signal, that's literally what we mean: help me. Mayday is the international call signal for distress used by ships and aircraft that are in the midst of the most severe circumstances. Because of this, the word mayday sometimes denotes hopelessness or desperation. People tend to cry mayday when they've reached their own personal threshold of despair. Why wait until we hit that point of desperation? Why not see the word mayday as an everyday request for help? Why not cry mayday for the small things like help with the laundry or with a report that is due? It is possible. We can view the intimidating act of asking for help as a gesture of hope and optimism and not one of despair and misery. There are a number of valid reasons why we don't ask for the help we need. It's important to know what stops us from doing what we know in our hearts is the right thing to do. So, that's where we'll begin: with why we don't ask for the help we deserve. Within Part One of the book, we'll explore why we don't ask, why we should, and the anchoring principles that make the Mayday! process work. Try This sections throughout the book are practical activities that will breathe life into the concepts and principles of the Mayday! process. You might want to set up a word-processing file where you can write your thoughts and comments on the Try This activities. In Part Two of the book, you will discover the seven-step process that will change the way you see and, equally important, perform the act of asking for help. Designed to strengthen and clarify your requests, the Mayday! process will lead you to more profound friendships, greater intimacy, and a life of simplicity, ease, and flow.

The wonder of flight has long captured the human imagination. In this beguiling history — ranging from the first aircraft to astronauts and beyond — David Darling tells the stories of the true-life adventurers whose wonder has translated into bizarre contraptions, magnificent achievements, and, sometimes, startling folly. Readers will discover outrageous attempts to fly like a bird and fall from the edge of space, as well as meet Napoleonic ballooniste Sophie Blanchard and her daredevil husband, the real “X-Men” who flew the supersonic experimental “X-planes” for the U.S. Air Force, stuntman Lincoln Beachey looping-the-loop in a pinstripe suit, and, of course, The Rocket Man himself: Yves Rossy, who in 2006 was the first person to cross the English Channel using a jet-pack. Eccentric and reckless, Darling’s daring cast of dreamers is guaranteed to entertain and inspire.

Bill Eidson scored a hit with THE REPO, the first installment of an acclaimed series featuring ex-DEA Agent Jack Merchant and boat repossession contractor Sarah Ballard. In THE MAYDAY, Eidson continues their intimate, fractious partnership as they search for a man's children, missing on the high seas. No one believes Matt Coulter's story of his foundered sailboat, a life raft adrift at night, and a rescue turned kidnapping-least of all, the police. Jack and Sarah don't either, at first. But they reluctantly take the case, and the further they follow its twists and turns, the more convinced they become that the missing children are still alive. At least for now. "Eidson is a fine adventure writer, with the ability to shift among scenes, sketch in minor characters and create a pair of heroes whose vulnerabilities entice and intrigue us." —Washington Post "Gradually the skeptical Merchant and Ballard come to believe in the existence of a particularly nasty, modern-day pirate. Under Eidson's cool and expert guidance, so will you." —Chicago Tribune
