Welcome to the world of corporate decision-making, workplace gambles, and a myriad of human interactions. This is a story that affirms the traditional values of hard work, fidelity, and building the human alliances necessary for achieving enduring success. John Andrew, a retired Boeing executive, offers a unique insider look at the profound changes Boeing experienced in the 1960s as the product mix shifted from military hardware to the first generation of jet-powered airliners. The requirement for more factory space was fueled by new models and a surging worldwide demand for air travel. Massive construction projects were launched, including a newly constructed 747-sized factory on 760 acres at Paine Field in Everett, Washington. These cathedrals of airframe assembly remain vital to Boeing's ongoing operations today.

Countless men served in World War II. In combat, on the seas, in administrative offices, and in the skies. This is a vivid and engrossing account in words and images of one man's experience as a "Hump Driver," a pilot who transported people, supplies, and ordnance over the Himalayan mountains between Assam, India, and China. With highly detailed drawings and honest, relatable, and compelling narratives, tales of war are presented and shared in such a way that the reader/viewer will be left with a deep appreciation and respect for the pilots and their crews. Arthur La Vove presents an unforgettable collection of portraits that depict how profoundly war changes a man. With poor-quality food, unsanitary and uncomfortable facilities, harsh and dangerous weather, and malfunctioning communications and equipment, it is easy to see and feel for the men who endured these hardships in such a foreign place as the Hump.
