  • (Made in America? series) Looks at the enormous costs, the huge risks, and the potentially colossal pay-offs in the commercial aircraft industry. How does a company break into a field requiring billions of start-up dollars? What kinds of skills do workers need? How did Airbus save the dying European aircraft industry and by-pass America's now troubled McDonnell Douglas? Boeing is still number one, but major components of its jets are now made in Japan.
