I would never have thought to structure a story around a training center specializing in training helicopter pilots how to get out of their craft after a water crash with the vehicle upside down in the water. Mostly because, if I'd even known such a thing existed, I wouldn't know anything about it. English writer Stephen Gallagher apparently does, because that's the basis and setting for his short story, "The Box." The details strike me -- from an outsider's perspective -- as being highly realistic and believable; almost to the point of being a bit boring, but it's those details which are necessary to set up the twist ending. Need I say it? Another ghost story.
