Miracle on Buffalo Pass

Web 1

On the evening of December 4, 1978, Rocky Mountain Airways Flight 217 departed Steamboat Springs, Colorado bound for Denver with twenty-two souls on board. Less than an hour later, the flight was forced down on Buffalo Pass at an altitude of 10,500 feet when it encountered severe icing conditions and downdrafts created by the winds of a mountain wave. The tragic accident triggered one of the most intense search and rescue efforts in Rocky Mountain history. This true story is told in the words of the courageous passengers and crew—who found themselves struggling to survive the arctic type blizzard conditions with no hope of immediate help—and the heroic search and rescue personnel who risked lives to save lives. Led by an elite Civil Air Patrol unit, with assistance from other rescue organizations and civilian volunteers, the search and rescue effort is considered one of the most successful in Civil Air Patrol’s history.

The Pilot Class


Tri Con Airlines has nine thousand pilots and they need more. When Tri Con hires eight new pilots and assigns them to a pilot class, they find the ground school and flight simulator challenge more than expected. The class is a mix of former military pilots and civilians with varying experience, including a former female flight attendant. Who can survive The Pilot Class and meet the challenge of flying the line as a Tri Con first officer. Personal relationships, a married flight attendant with an abusive husband, a major airline accident, and the federal government are all obstacles that stand in the way of The Pilot Class.

The Pilot Class is available on Amazon, Kindle, and Audible. For personalized signed copies email the author at harrisonbooks@numail.org. ($9.99 plus $2.75 shipping)  

Shadow Flight

Shadow flight cover

America’s security may depend on a young flight instructor from rural south Texas. Kyle Bennett’s charter flight disappears without a trace, along with a female student and the charter passenger. The mysterious disappearance cannot be solved despite the best efforts of the Civil Air Patrol, the Coast Guard and the FAA.

An independent aviation consultant is hired to assist and her investigation merges with that of the DEA and Tri Con Airline’s security department, who are battling the flow of drugs into the US from Mexico. When a Tri Con captain, Bud Gibson, and one of the airline’s mechanics, Matt Pierce, go missing, it’s suspected that more than drug smuggling is involved.

A conspiracy to complete the 9-11 attack is underway and the terrorist are sure that they can defeat all of America’s security measures. Only Kyle, Bud and Matt stand in their way. 

Shadow Flight may be purchased from BluewaterPress (discount price) or Amazon, Kindle, and Audible. For personalized, signed copies e-mail the author at harrisonbooks@numail.org ($9.99 plus 2.75 shipping).


Equal Time Point


“There has never been an open ocean ditching by an air carrier aircraft.” These are the words that haunt Captain Charlie Wells when he realizes that his jumbo jet has a problem over the Atlantic. As the flight approaches the Equal Time Point, and is the most distant from land, Captain Wells and his crew of pilots and flight attendants struggle to avoid making history. A small U.S. Navy ship may be the only hope for the two hundred and eight souls on board if the worst case scenario occurs. None of the passengers or crew  could know that a disgruntled airline mechanic has sentenced them to a night of terror. Airline personnel, the FAA and the FBI try to solve the mystery of Tri Con Flight Eleven.

            Ride along in the cockpit with the pilots and walk the cabin aisles with the flight attendants as their routine international flight becomes a nightmare that will require all their training to survive. After reading Equal Time Point, frequent flyers and first time passengers alike, will find themselves studying the emergency procedure card in the seatback before their next flight.

Equal Time Point is available on Amazon, Kindle, and Audible. For personalized signed copies e-mail order to harrisonbooks@numail.org   ($9.99+ 2.75 shipping)
