The 707 made its first commercial flight in 1959 and Caidin's book was released in 1959 (by Ballantine as a mass market paperback original.) This is a "fully illustrated" mmpb which means there is a section of photoplates and perhaps 25 pen and ink drawings. Chapter titles include "Moonbeams and Quicksilver," "Electronic Pathway," "Laminar Airflow and Flexible Flying," "This is the Way to Fly," "An Airline for the Passenger," "First Flight," and "Basic Specifications of Boeing Jet Airliners." 210 pp.
