Land, sea and sky are at the heart of the two stories The Halli Casser-Jayne Show explores, Wednesday, May 28, 3 pm ET when Annette Herfkens the sole survivor of a 1992 plane crash in the Vietnamese jungle, and David Barrie, a practiced seaman and lifelong mariner who learned to navigate with a sextant when he crossed the North Atlantic in a 35-foot sloop at the age of 19 visit The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
In 1992 a commercial aircraft carrying thirty-three people left Ho Chi Minh City for the beach resort Nha Trang. Two of the passengers were headed for a romantic getaway when the plane crashed into a mountaintop enclosed by the Vietnamese jungle, leaving Annette Herfkens trapped in the wilderness as the sole survivor. In her new book Turbulence she recounts her tale of survival, a journey you won’t believe, and, in the wake of Malaysian Flight 370, a story you won’t want to miss.
The great-great-nephew of J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, wanderlust comes naturally to David Barrie. In his new book Sextant, Barrie tells the story of a young man’s daring sea voyage and the men who mapped the world’s oceans. It’s a compelling and dramatic tale of invention and discovery – an eloquent elegy to one of the most important navigational instruments ever created, and the story of the daring mariners who used it to explore, conquer, and map the world.
