Ghosts of Flight 401

Walker, Kathryn. Ghosts of Flight 401. Crabtree: 2009. ISBN:0778741427.

This book is about the unsolved mystery of the ghost of flight 401. On December 29, 1972 Eastern Airlines Tristar plane number 310 crashed in the everglades in Florida. There were 176 passengers on board, and only 75 survived. Both Captain Bob Loft and engineer Don Repo died in the crash. A couple months after the crash passengers on the Eastern Tristar planes started to see strange things on the planes. Once there was too many passengers on board, and the extra passenger was wearing an Eastern Airlines suit. The flight attendant spoke to the man, but he disappeared in front of everyone. Right before he disappeared a man said he was Don Repo. I really enjoyed this book, because it is filled with excitement. Like when the ghosts keep disappearing you would wonder what would happen. I would recommend this book to children and adults of all ages who enjoy ghost stories.
