"Compact but quite readable book; it should interest all airline passengers who wonder how pilots land safely in an environment where they can barely see their hands before their faces."

"A key piece in the patchwork of the history of aviation."

"Conway's intelligent analysis differentiates this volume from many books on the history of aviation... Blind Landings sheds badly needed light."

"Another good illustration from aviation history... of the ways in which politics, ideology, culture, and even nature play constitutive roles in the development and use of technologies."
