Tiger on a Leash By Alvin Moscow


“Tiger on a Leash” by Alvin Moscow provides a study-in-depth of the 1957 crash of a Northeast Airlines DC-6A on Riker’s Island, New York, that killed 20 out of 101 Miami-bound persons and severely burned many others. If the minute-by-minute technique is by now a little shopworn, still it’s an informative, absorbing, technically accurate and intelligent book-the more so because it deals with one of the most baffling crashes in commercial aviation history. Published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1961. Hardcover, no dust jacket. Book shows wear with some stains. Acceptable condition.
