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, to the political and social forces that have sought to minimize the impact of the revolutionary fly-by-wire technology, the author assembles the stories necessary to truly understand the "miracle" on the Hudson, and makes us question our assumptions about human beings in modern aviation.--from publisher description.
