Ghosts of Flight
In a stand-alone novel that is not part of a series, this revelation has no life beyond the last page. The character arc is completely contained within one story. I had spent days outlining the story based on what I considered to be a strong knowledge base regarding the structure of modern fiction, and wrote the first draft in about a month. The process identified no less than 10 specific flaws I subsequently addressed in later drafts. Initially, he refused to accept that his hero made the mistake that killed him.
But as time passed, Nick began to question his reluctance, and this internal conflict became manifested in a dichotomy:. But the reality is just the opposite, and his family has had to accept that his professional dedication takes precedence over them.
Into this status quo ordinary world at the beginning of the novel arrives an inciting event that triggers in Nick a legendary tenacity for uncovering the truth behind air crashes. The story puts Nick in direct conflict with a number of opponents, the most dangerous of which is a stone-cold special ops assassin. His career in the NTSB is over. Initially, before the Truby workshop, I wrote the ending to show Nick arriving home with a new goal at the forefront, that of trying his best to make up for lost time with his family.
His initial reaction is unqualified acceptance of his old position and the potential for advancement to the top slot in the Aviation Division, immediately followed by the critical self-revelation that combines both his psychological and moral needs at the beginning of the novel.
Alitalia Flight 404
Newfound dedication to family comes first, and Nick has finally forgiven his father with the commitment to reconnect with his own son as best he can. Red Line begins about a year later in story time, and what seems like an eternity in real time. The reason? Essential factoid: NTSB employees are prohibited from investigating criminal wrongdoing. This real-world limitation played a key role in Pilot Error.
Nick is responsible for more than a few in Pilot Error, but I think readers generally forgive him because his objective is justice for those whose lives were taken as a result of unbridled power and the corruption that always follows in its wake. At the beginning of Red Line, Nick has no intention of investigating anything.

Alitalia Flight captain and his first officer are at odds over the data they receive, as they make their landing approach to Zurich Airport. It is a disagreement that ends in the crash of Alitalia , on November 14, The Douglas DC, operated by Alitalia, crashed into the woodlands of Weiach as it approached Zurich Airport killing all 46 people on board. It falsely indicated that the aircraft was about 1, feet higher than it actually was. The ILS receiver of the co-pilot was working correctly and displayed the dangerously low approach.
Without thoroughly examining which value was correct, the pilot decided to ignore the second device, aborting a go-around maneuver initiated by the co-pilot. Shortly afterward, at CET, the plane struck Stadlerberg Mountain at 1, feet, killing all 40 passengers and six crew. As a result, the aircraft produced an asymmetric lift force and began to roll to the right, finally slamming into the mountain in a nearly inverted position.
