From the series Ripples. It seems easy to get on a plane and fly somewhere, but it takes about 55 people to get a jet ready to fly. Each has his own job handling baggage, fueling, preparing and storing food, checking weather and maps,servicing the aircraft. Some important people you don't usually see are maintenance men,meteorologists at the weather station, and controllers in the tower. All these people and more work together so passengers can travel safely and comfortably by jet.
