When the Sun Blinked: Part 1 – Search for the Truth

This story was refreshingly different from many in this genre and took place near South Africa which was also a good change.

About The Book

At 09:15 on the morning of 08 October 2015, the biggest disaster in aviation history occurred when several commercial flights, other aircraft, and helicopters, simply vanished from both radar and visual sight in the vicinity of Cape Town International Airport, South Africa.
No traces of wreckage, debris or bodies were ever found.
Flights AHA 115, inbound from New York, was one of them. It crashed into the sea, close to shore and 28 passengers ultimately survived.
Everyone else was either killed in the initial crash, succumbed later to their injuries, drowned, or were killed by the sharks attracted to the blood and gore as they scrambled desperately through the water to shore.
The 28 survivors thought they had been the lucky ones.
They were dead wrong.
As days pass with no sign of rescue, they search through the debris on the beach for food and water and survive by scavenging through the hold of the wrecked airliner when the tide is out.
Days merge into weeks and for some reason, the world seems to have forgotten them.
What they do discover is they seem to be in the middle of a pristine nature park, with familiar wildlife living in profusion – but bizarrely, mixed with wildlife supposedly shot out to extinction several hundred years previously.
After several weeks, a group of nine decided to attempt to find a way through the mountain range behind them hoping to find signs of humanity.
Because apart from anything else, they quickly come to realize that in this pristine environment, ruled by nature, they are somewhere near the bottom of the food chain.

About the Author

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1951. I spent my early years in Linbro Park, a suburb of Johannesburg, on a small holding of peach trees, asparagus and rhubarb, exploring the long disused next-door cemetery, avoiding snakes and grandpa’s beady eyes. (And they were eyes that missed nothing). From there the family relocated to a farm in Chingola, Northern Rhodesia (later Zambia). Given the farm was carved out of virgin forest, it was back to avoiding snakes and other denizens of the thick bush – but all good learning curves. From Zambia the family relocated to Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) and from there I attended university in South Africa. Somehow it seemed that all of my school years were spent at isolated boarding schools, buried deep in the bush in both Northern Rhodesia and Rhodesia, which may account for a lot of my quirks. After the bush war, when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, I emigrated back to South Africa where I now live in Cape Town.
