James Fallows on ‘China Airborne’


Hour 1

JAMES FALLOWS’ new book, “China Airborne,” combines his two passions: flight & China. More than two-thirds of the new airports under construction today are being built in China; Chinese airlines expect to triple their fleet size over the next decade; and China is buying up American companies that manufacture airplanes and their parts. Fallows takes stock of this effort and what it means for China’s present and future and its relations with the rest of the world.
