One of a series of information books, which enables the reader to discover all sorts of interesting facts about a range of subjects. This book looks at how and why things fly (including machines, birds, insects and some animals), how people have experimented over the years with different kinds of flying machines, and how in less than a hundred years since the first successful flight people can now fly to the moon. Some of the record-breaking achievements are listed, and the book contains a gatefold, which features a busy airport scene with a cut-away illustration of a jumbo jet. At the end there is a fun quiz enabling children to test their general knowledge.
