Nice Collectible 1st Edition, 1st Printing hardcover copy. "The authors undertook the exceptionally difficult task of combining three complex subjects--technological advance in aircraft, the economics of aircraft production, and the economics of air transport----into a coordinated narrative. There is a comprehensive survey of the growth of aviation, but with an emphasis on two major phases: the emergence of what they term "the economic airplane," and the development of the jet airliner. The book is concerned primarily with commercial aviation, military aircraft come into it not quite incidentally but predominantly in terms of what they have contributed to the evolution of the airliner."
