About the book

'Max Impact: A Story of Survival'

A book by Jonathan Godfrey and MJ Brickey.


The impact of the 2005 LifeEvac 2 crash into the ice-cold January waters of the Potomac River took two souls but spared one — shattering not only a helicopter but lives into intricate pieces.


Sole survivor Jonathan Godfrey knows the fragments can't be forced back as they were, but he has spent more than a decade picking them up again, arranging them, and presses them into place within the pages of his book to make a grand mosaic that readers can appreciate.


This one crash made powerful waves and evoked such ripples from its maximum point of impact that it refaced our banks and redefined our shorelines where we all sat comfortably thinking we couldn’t feel the effects, but have been affected, and will continue to be shaped in ways not one of us imagined.
