Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Describing the feats of the brave men and women who piloted the early flying machines, to the pioneers of long-distance flight and the test pilots who ushered in the jet age, Flight is a gripping narrative of humankind's quest to conquer the skies and explore space. Loaded with spectacular full-color photos, dramatic firsthand accounts, and fact-filled profiles on a huge range of aircraft, this is an enthralling account of a century of innovation and adventure.

Book News Annotation:

Illustrated with thousands of color images drawn from the pictorial resources of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air & Space Museum, this volume presents the history of aviation from the first medieval attempts at flight, to passenger flight and the space shuttle program. Coverage includes planes and pilots, triumphs, tragedies, innovations and adventures, and the future of flight—from anti- terrorist strategies to light aircraft, pilotless planes, and space vacations. Oversize: 10.5x12<">.
