Summary
In Fly By Wire one of America's greatest journalists takes us on a strange and unexpected 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, to the political and social forces seeking to minimize the impact of fly-by-wire technology Langewiesche helps us truly understand the "miracle" on the Hudson
