Investigations into the causes of aircraft accidents have for decades focused on what happened and who did it - very rarely Why? It is the question Why? that David Beaty has addressed here, fighting the misnomer of 'pilot error' and propounding that the cause should be sought deeper inside human beings who make apparently simple human errors. "The Naked Pilot makes fascinating and compulsive reading. It should be compulsory reading for all trainee and experienced pilots alike, as well as air traffic controllers, corporate managers and aircraft manufacturers." - Business Aviation 8 pages of b/w photographs

After landing safely back at the airport with a fire on board, no exit on a DC-8 was opened for 23 minutes and 301 people inside perished. Investigations into aircraft accidents often focus on what happened and who did it, but very rarely on why, which is the question this book addresses.
