Fiction or non-fiction?

Airframe, by Michael Crichton, is one of my favorite fiction novels. Quite a good read.

I have Naked Airport: A Cultural History of the World's Most Revolutionary Structure by Alastair Gordon sitting in my drawer.

I haven't read it yet, but it looks great. It's non-fiction, 263 pages...

Does anyone know the name of an aviation book that is about regular size, red cover, and about how some one hijacked a plane? I found it in our house in the Bahamas and fell in love with it but never got to finish it before I left.

yea it was pretty good. some of the pix they had in there of LGA were great. there was one taken in the '40s, i think, from the roof of the CTB showing the area where the parking garage now stands. lol... there was nothing there. i'll try to scan it nad host it so everyone can see...

if i were ever to do a thesis i would probably have to do it on the history of LGA. i seriously love this airport, but that nostalgic me talking again. hm..
