    2nd question for AA

    back in book 1 when the event takes place, there is no talk about airplane crashes? I know in a EMP event a lot of air craft will become big bricks in the sky.

    Hmm....

    The only airport I know of between Ang... Morgan's house and where his truck stopped at is somewhere in Leesburg, and isn't that a private airport? I know the old farts in Lady Lake don't have one.

    The only traffic otherwise would be Gainseville to Orlando or GV to Tampa, and those go way away from Morgan's trail.

    Help me out if I'm wrong.

    I am thinking more along the lines of the Big Jets going to Jacksonville Orlando or Tampa i know chances are at lest one would be near enough to see the crash. at lest i would think. or at lest he may walk up on wreckage at some point.

    Even a brick will fall in a more manageable way if it has enough wing and tail, there's a pilot or two around can speak on it. In the books, I imagined it contributing to the cityscape on fire images that Morgan viewed on his new friend's tablet.

    Fisty, it's just one of those things I didn't get into. You're correct and there surely would be a great many crashes. The area Morgan walked through isn't really on a flight path, that's farther east. Probably should have gotten into it though.

    Or small craft, there'd be instruments failing and small craft setting down in all kinds of unlikely places. I bet a plowed field would look very inviting to someone with fried electronics, in a glide, unable to lower retractable landing gear.

    I always wondered about that too. Just looked at it as a narrower look at things. Good questions though.
