This kit comes with all the parts you'll need for assembling your own flying airplanes - even a battery-powered propeller winder! Build a jumbo jet, a sleek and sporty private aircraft, a fighter jet, and a sturdy bush plane. You even mix and match parts to create your own designs. The Wright brothers made the first engine-powered flight about 100 years ago. But people have had their eye on the skies for thousands of years, ever since man first admired a bird in flight. This book gets to the heart of the principles of flight, providing a pilot's eye view of the skies and of airplanes. So turn the page and step into the hanger for a private tour of some fast, slick, amphibious, and gravity-defying machines. Learn about the four forces of flight and the three axes of rotation, how to apply the law of motion to understanding thrust and lift, the complex instruments and monitors that keeps pilots on track, how a 747 containing 380.000 pounds of fuel gets off the ground and the amazing skill it takes to fly fighter jets, harriers, bush planes and World War II fighters.
