Summary
Journalist William Langewiesche takes listeners on a journey into the fascinating world of advanced aviation. From the testing laboratories where engineers struggle to build a jet engine that can systematically resist bird attacks through the creation of the A320 in France and the political and social forces that have sought to minimize the impact of the revolutionary fly-by-wire technology, Langewiesche assembles the untold stories necessary to truly understand the 'miracle' on the Hudson
