9780060882426: 747: Creating the World's First Jumbo Jet and Other Adventures from a Life in Aviation

747 is the thrilling story behind "the Queen of the Skies"--the Boeing 747--as told by Joe Sutter, one of the most celebrated engineers of the twentieth century, who spearheaded its design and construction. Sutter's vivid narrative takes us back to a time when American technology was cutting-edge and jet travel was still glamorous and new. With wit and warmth, he gives an insider's sense of the larger than life-size personalities--and the tensions--in the aeronautical world.
