Description

Get ready for takeoff! From an acclaimed 3-D master comes a jam-packed, interactive book on flying machines that will send readers soaring.

What was the first man-made object to fly, one thousand years ago? Who was the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic? How on earth (or in the air) does a modern cockpit work? Loaded with flaps, pull-tabs, and pop-ups to manipulate, this fact-filled exploration of flying machines from balloons to Boeings builds up to two big finales — an intricate pop-up cockpit that puts readers at the controls and a bustling airport runway that zooms into the future of flight.
