ALL FOUR ENGINES HAVE FAILED

by Betty Tootell
 

The true and triumphal story of flight BA009 and the 'Jakarta' incident in June 1982. The author who was on the flight and has a background in civil aviation describes how during a routine flight from London to Auckland, as the flight was over Java all four engines stopped. As the flight engineer tried repeatedly to restart them, the 247 passengers and crew faced seemingly certain death as the plane dropped for long minutes towards the mountain below.

MERCENARIES TO CONQUERORS

by Paul Brown

When a band of Norman adventurers arrived in southern Italy to fight in the Lombard insurrections against the Byzantine empire in the early 1000s, few would have predicted that within a few generations some of these men would seize control of Apulia, Campania, Calabria and Sicily. How did they make such extraordinary gains and then consolidate their power? this absorbing study, seeks to answer these questions and throw light onto the Norman conquests across the Mediterranean which were even more remarkable than those achieved in France and England.
