Synopsis

Flight by DK

DK Eyewitness Flight is a spectacular and informative guide to the fascinating world of aircraft. Superb colour photographs offer a unique 'eyewitness' exploration of the history of flight, as well as provide a close-up view of the many different kinds of aircraft in use today, from helicopters to hot-air balloons. Show your child a Victorian steam-powered aeroplane, what the first pilots wore, how wings provide lift, and what's inside a 'black box'. Discover how a plane lands and takes off, how a glider works, which plane could be carried on a car, how a helicopter flies, and much more. Then use the giant pull-out wall chart to decorate their room. Great for projects or just for fun, make sure your child learns everything they need to know about Flight.
