Planes by Margaret Parrish

Planes showcases some of the most unusual flying machines in the sky, from warplanes and stealth aircraft to the supersonic Concorde and the NASA Space Shuttle. The most impressive features and feats of each plane are highlighted, while action photos show airplanes in flight. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains airplane terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each plane. Find out about...The last space shuttle that cost GBP300 million to launch. The B-2 Spirit, a spy plane that looks as if it has come from another planet. An experimental plane called the X-43 that can travel up to 10 times the speed of sound! The monstrous A380 Airbus, which carries up to 1,000 people.
