In Pan, Pan, Pan, Captain Denis Murphy recounts the harrowing events that transpired on his charter flight out of Havana, Cuba. In a pilot's worst nightmare come to life, Murphy survived an inflight fire, double engine failure, and subsequent ditching into the shark-infested waters of the Atlantic. Following his ditching, rescue attempts by the Air Force and Coast Guard proved unsuccessful in locating the downed pilot. This spine-tingling retelling of his frightening ordeal enthralls readers in a way no work of fiction could match. An exciting page turner from cover to cover.
From the Manufacturer
Pan, Pan, Pan! is a pilot's terminology for distress and urgent air traffic control procedures. In 2003 Captain Denis Murphy was the pilot on a charter flight from Havana, Cuba involved in a real life survival event. Captain Murphy's story is a very unique episode in the archives of aviation history. He was able to survive an in-flight fire; a cockpit full of smoke; a forced ditching into the Atlantic Ocean when both engines gave out; and getting out of the sinking plane wreck while surviving in shark infested waters. An Air Force C-130 and an American Eagle Commuter airplane plus Coast Guard Units searched to no avail but the event culminated in being rescued by a local fisherman near Marathon in the Florida Keys. It is a story of survival and desperate human conditions and also a story of emotion, passion and love.
