Mass Murder in the Sky: The Bombing of Flight 629 is a 7,063 word historical true crime piece about mass killer, Jack Gilbert Graham.
It tells the shocking story of hatred, revenge, mass murder, terrorism, and a bizarre dynamite bomb Christmas gift that brought a plane down in the Colorado sky more than half a century ago, killing all forty-four passengers and crew, and the intense investigation that resulted in bringing the killer to justice and paying the ultimate price for his brutal crimes.
On November 1, 1955, United Air Lines Flight 629 took off from Denver, Colorado's Stapleton Airfield en route to Portland, Oregon. Eleven minutes into the flight, there was a tremendous explosion that ended the lives of everyone aboard the ill-fated airliner.
A coordinated effort between law enforcement agencies, Civil Aeronautics Board investigators, and United Air Lines officials led to identifying the killer as Jack Graham, whose very own mother was aboard the plane and targeted to die.
The truth is certainly far more frightening than fiction as this tale will attest to....

Now living in Norfolk, enjoy historical fiction, political biography/autobiography and the classics.
A brief history of the title story. Followed by a cobbled together selection of other bits and pieces. Avoid.
A poorly performed narration of several true crime stories. The stories were factual, but I was expecting something more than I could have read on Wickipedia. Don't waste a credit.
