Who first dreamed of flight? How does a jet engine work? What does a cockpit look like?

Airplanes are a favorite topic and this book has everything young readers might want to explore, from the earliest flights in legend and literature, to the planes of the World Wars and the future. Completely up to date and touching on recent events such as the Gulf Wars, the book covers civilian and military airplanes and helicopters as well as the pilots and engineers that put them in the air.

The acetate overlays feature:

Pioneering Pilots : cutaway view of the Spirit of St. Louis The Jet Engine : cutaway view of a turbojet The Need for Speed : inside view of the Concorde The Next Generation : cutaway view of the RQ-4A Global Hawk Unmanned Reconnaissance System.

The Uncovering series: Exposing science and technology in stunning color and detail.

Jam-packed with exacting full-color illustrations, these titles focus on topics of particular interest to young readers. Informative text and descriptive captions and sidebars complement dozens of annotated drawings. Each book contains four acetate overlays, used in some cases to show changes over time, in others to show a cutaway interior.
