The Devil at 37,000 Feet

I meant to link this earlier. I've been hounding everyone I know to read it.

From Vanity Fair a couple of months ago, it's one of the best pieces of reporting I've read. William Langeweische is outstanding, regardless of topic, but this one is spellbinding.

Back in September, 2006, two planes collided over the Amazon. Langeweische dissects the experience moment by moment. With the all the current airplane mishaps and collisions that seem to be haunting our news, how this crash happened is incredible.

That is probably the best written piece I've read in more than a year. Brilliantly done. And horribly chilling.
