Aloft: Thoughts on the Experience of Flight

by ,

More than a decade after the publication of "Inside the Sky," "Aloft" is a completely revised, expanded, and updated edition of this classic text, which is widely regarded as the most lyrical and incisive book on flying. In these essays, William Langewiesche considers how flying has altered not only how we move about the earth, but also how we view our world and our place in it. With vivid descriptions of the aesthetics and excitement of flight, he also writes of the risks that go with this beauty: the perils of air traffic control, and the dangers of nervous passengers and bad weather. Full of spare and elegant prose, "Aloft" is a fascinating journey into the sky. Hide synopsis
