The Flight of The Arctic Fox tells the riveting story of the lives of thirty-one passengers and crew on board a BEA Vickers Viscount flying from London to Naples in October 1958. Following a mid-air collision with a jet fighter over Nettuno in Italy, everyone on board died, including the author’s brother, who was a member of the crew.

Rory O’Grady met the son of the radio officer in 2018 who had made it his mission to erect a permanent memorial in Italy. This led to a search for the bereaved families around the world, listening to their stories, and connecting many of the families for the first time.
