Description

The Bell X-1 was extremely fast—it was the first plane to fly faster than the speed of sound. The B-29 was extremely dangerous—it carried 20,000 pounds of bombs. The Airbus A-380 is extremely long—twice as long as a basketball court. The space shuttle flies extremely high—it orbits the earth 250 miles above the ground.

Open Extreme Aircraft! Q&A to discover how far the first airplane flew, what a barnstormer did, and what keeps an airplane up in the air. From gliders and balloons to planes that can reach space, find out about the machines that made dreams of human flight come true.
