(back cover)

Want to know how a jet engine works? Or how an airplane stays in the air? Or what the pilot does to control the plane's speed and direction?

If you're looking for answers to these questions, this book is definitely for you! Most pages feature several flaps that you can lift to explore the insides of different airplanes. In some illustrations you'll find flaps beneath flaps, so you can really delve deeply into a plane's inner workings. Easy-to-read text and kid-friendly, colorful illustrations make this book a perfect guide to help you understand how planes work.

Synopsis:

Both propeller-driven and jet-engine airplanes are shown in detail. Kids also discover the principles that allow a heavy airplane to rise and remain in the air, and to maneuver, climb, dive, and come to a safe landing. The profusely illustrated How It Works Books present brief histories of engineering development. Detail drawings show mechanical parts and cut-away illustrations show how the parts are assembled and work together. This book's lift-the-flap illustrations reveal successive layers of detail in airplane construction.
