City in the Sky explores a unique metropolis: a midair “city” composed of nearly a million people on flights that crisscross the world daily. Meet the hidden army working to keep the city aloft, uncover the exceptional engineering and technology that make it work, and learn what it takes to get a million people off the ground. From building the world's biggest passenger plane to controlling the flow of passengers through the busiest airport on the planet, to the perils of takeoff from the coldest city on Earth, City in the Sky provides an eye-opening perspective on air travel.
