Jon Ziomek, BA ’69

Alumnus Jon Ziomek,  BA '69 and his nonfiction history book, "Collision on Tenerife," was recently published by Post Hill Press, a division of Simon & Schuster. The book explains how and why two passenger jet 747s collided on a foggy runway in 1977, causing the worst disaster in aviation history, with 583 killed. My research included interviews with aviation safety officials, crisis behavior professionals, and more than a dozen survivors.
