Summary
Smith, an airline pilot and author of the web's popular Ask the Pilot feature, separates the fact from fallacy and tells you everything you need to know about air travel. From how planes fly, to the real story on congestion and delays, to a provocative look at terrorism and security. It's a thoughtful, funny, at times deeply personal look into the strange and misunderstood world of commercial flying. --Excerpted from publisher's website
