Book Overview

In Angel on the Wing, Joan Zeller shares how she survived a plane crash that took
sixty-five lives in February 1959. She was a stewardess on American Airlines Flight
320, returning to New York from Chicago. Close to midnight on that foggy, cold
evening, the plane crashed into the choppy waters of the East River on approach to
LaGuardia Airport. Joan Zeller’s memoir vividly brings to life the events of the crash,
the peril passengers and crew experienced following impact, the time spent in the
frigid waters in total darkness before their dramatic rescue, and her recovery from
traumatic injuries sustained in the accident. The author was inspired to pen her story
when she came across a website that chronicled the events of that evening, listing
the names of those who perished, as well as the eight survivors. Following the story
was an opportunity to respond in an open letter. After reading pleas from family
members of the deceased she recognized an invaluable opportunity as eyewitness
and survivor, to help bring solace and closure to the families of those who lost loved
ones that fateful night.
