Description:
New book, 261 pages. In August 1947 in the High Andes, a Lancastrian called Star Dust dissapeared after a mysterious message from the radio operator. This book is the story of those on board that pioneering aircraft, and of the ramshackle airline - British South American Airways - that sent them to their deaths. Run by a charismatic Australian war hero, fresh from Bomber Command, and crewed almost exlusively by ex-bomber pilots, the airline was run on a shoestring budget, and soon became one of the most dangerous airlines in the Western World. After the wreckage was discovered in 2000, this book pieces together the lives of the colourfull passengers and crew, and the Argentinian military men who declared war on one another in an attempt to claim the credit.
