The huge KLM Super Constellation with its 4 propeller driven engines crashed into the Atlantic Ocean around dawn on August 14, 1958. The plane's flight originated in Amsterdam and the difficulty began soon after a stopover for refueling in Shannon, Ireland. My e-book looks at the likely reasons that the giant aircraft came down suddenly, and with little warning, descending two miles very rapidly, and belly flopping into the ocean about 50 miles west of Galway Bay. Only one survivor had a lifejacket on, a 5-year-old boy, and the final transmission received from the KLM flight reported normal operating conditions while cruising at 16,000 feet.
