* ImprobablePilotingSkills: Everyone is amazed that the pilot is able to land the plane after what it went through. [[spoiler:This turns out to be a key clue in what really happened: the pilot's son, himself a pilot, took over for his father when he went to take a bathroom break, and proceeded to cause the disaster by over-correcting an altitude warning, thanks to his inexperience with the plane. Eventually the son passed out and the plane's autopilot finally took over, enabling the crew to land the plane safely.]]

''Airframe'' was MichaelCrichton's eleventh novel, in which he tackles common misconceptions about flying accidents while at the same time taking shots at an overly-sensational news media. Utilizing his usual technical details, it met with mostly positive responses, some people going so far as to say they actually felt better about flying after reading it.
