'A compulsive tale of skulduggery told in a vividly readable style' Glasgow Herald
The gripping story of the biggest trade war in aviation history.

Meanwhile, Boeing has thrown its weight behind the smaller 787 Deamliner, an aircraft whose emphasis is on fuel economy and reduced emissions.
The future of commercial air travel is in the balance, and the outcome is difficult to predict.
