    Fatal Incident, by Jim Proebstle

    Minnesotan Nick Morgan overcomes the hardships of life during the Depression with the thrill of flying. But in 1943, Nick must leave his pregnant wife to become a WWII pilot in Alaska for the army's newly formed Air Transport Command. The remoteness of Alaska draws the attention of Manhattan Project scientists as a possible site for atomic bomb testing. Nick finds himself caught up in a Soviet plot aimed at stealing top-secret bomb and test site development documents. After Nick's plane goes down in a botched hijacking attempt by a Russian agent, all three crewmembers and eighteen military passengers are presumed dead by the U.S. military.

    To this day, the cause of the 1944 crash in Alaska’s Mount McKinley Range remains a mystery. No bodies were recovered and none of the 20 people onboard the ill-fated flight were ever heard from again. Author Jim Proebstle will join us via Skype to discuss the possibility that a conspiracy involving espionage was to blame for this crash
