“China Airborne” On May 31, 2012 author and national correspondent for The Atlantic, James Fallows, discussed the impact of domestic airline travel in China, which has doubled in the last ten years in the face of an overall global decline. In 2011, China announced its twelfth Five-Year Plan, which included the commitment to spend a quarter of a trillion dollars to jump-start its aerospace industry. Mr. Fallows examines the extraordinary scale of China's project, highlighting how it is poised to catalyze the nation's hyper-growth and urbanization, revolutionizing China in ways analogous to the building of America's transcontinental railroad in the 19th century, and its impact on the global air transportation industry.
