Title: British Monthly Magazine, Aeroplane, Reviews Six Miles from Home
In their August 2020 edition, Aeroplane reviewed Six Miles from Home, a seminal work of our incredible author, Stephen Morrin. The Aeroplane is a monthly British magazine devoted to aviation, with a focus on aviation history and preservation. Enlightening its readers since 1973, the publication rated Six Miles from Home as a good read for the discerning aviation enthusiasts. “Morrin approaches the story from several angles—events in the cockpit in the final stages of the flight, communications with air traffic control, rescue efforts on the ground, and the subsequent clamour in certain dailies asking whether charter flights were inherently less safe than those with a scheduled airline,” the review reads.
Six Miles from Home analyses the tragic incident that befell British Midland C-4 Argonaut G-ALHHG on the fateful day of 4th June 1967. Considered as the UK’s worst urban air disasters, it claimed 72 lives. With over 20 years of painstaking research and extensive interviews, the author delves into the annals of history to give a compelling and remarkable account of the events surrounding the disaster.
Stephen Morrin is a Cheshire-based writer and commentator, specialising in aviation and its history. Other than contributing numerous articles for newspapers and magazines, he has authored four books on the civilian aviation incidents. Six Miles from Home is his latest work.
