Brian Brown, along with his wife and one of his daughters, flew out of northern California in their personal plane, a Cessna 172, with plans to visit their oldest daughter in Mountain Home, ID. The trip was going well until weather started filling in the skies directly in their path. After diverting to an abandoned airfield to wait out the storm for a while, they saw what they thought was their chance to continue on. It didn't take long before their plans were drastically changed. The plane was engulfed in low-level clouds making it impossible for safe visual flight. In attempt to find a solution, the plane with the three family members aboard, slammed into the side of a mountain in Idaho. The book is: "Rescued: One Family's Miraculous Story of Survival"
