David Copperfield has spent his life mastering unbelievable, otherworldly illusions that take people’s breath away, and that combined with international stardom can make you forget that he is, in fact, a human being like the rest of us.

We’ve just returned from Shanghai, where we distributed the Chinese-language version of our BJT Buyers’ Guide at the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition. I’m pleased to report that demand for the magazine at ABACE proved even greater this year than it was in 2012, when it also attracted plenty of attention.
