Résumé : On May 15, 1995, one of the most important business stories of the decade entered its final act. For that is the date on which United Airlines took delivery of the first of a new generation of passenger aircraft... the Boeing 777.
The first large passenger jet designed completely by computer, the 777 is more complex and innovative than any other airliner ever built. Sabbagh has been granted virtually unlimited access to the creation of the 777, resulting in a great business story and a clear explanation of the scientific and engineering principles behind jet flight. Published in conjunction with a PBS series airing in January. 16-page photo insert. Illustrations.
