Written by local author Ginger Ebinger, the 272-page volume chronicles the planning, design and construction of DFW's $2.8-billion Capital Development Program (CDP), the largest expansion in the Airport's history which opened just four years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the resulting economic difficulties on the global aviation industry. "The World Connected" also features an in-depth look at the rich history of aviation in North Texas stretching back to the early 1900s with stories and photographs of the area's aviation pioneers, through the vision and creation of DFW International Airport. The book culminates with the most recent major milestones in DFW's history: the resolution of the Wright Amendment debate and the partnership with Chesapeake Energy to drill for natural gas on the Airport's 18,000 acres.
