Finding Carla: The Story that Forever Changed Aviation Search and Rescue

Finding Carla: The Story that Forever Changed Aviation Search and Rescue (Paperback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.

Finding Carla is Ross Nixon's first book. His writing has appeared in Alaska Magazine. Born in Canada, he grew up in the United States on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, where he learned to fly. He has worked as a commercial diver, a police officer and served in the U.S. Navy Seabees as a welder. He makes his living as a commercial pilot, what he really wanted to be doing all along. An Alaskan resident since 1989, he enjoys flying, reading and writing. He lives in Anchorage with his wife Kate and their two cats, Madge and Edith. As a young boy, Ross Nixon became dimly aware of the Oien family tragedy, but at first as only an incomplete, overheard account while he worked on his own father's airplane -- which was the same model as the Oien family's. It all turned into a mystery he felt he had to solve. Driven by a compelling vision of Carla writing in a diary while waiting for help to come, that inspiration led him to research and write. Coincidences of life helped lead him to answers... and finally, Finding Carla was a story Ross just had to tell.
