Flight by Richard Platt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Take off on an incredible journey from the Wright brother's first flight to space travel in the 21st century. How did the first aeroplane ever take off? What was it like to be in a dogfight with the Red Baron? Amazing digital photography takes you where you have never been before. Join a white-knuckle air race in the 1930s, take the controls of a massive 747 jet liner or zoom to the edge of space. Eyewitness accounts, and action packed scenes will turn exploring the evolution of aircraft over the last century into an edge of your seat adventure. It is brilliant for homework and school projects or just for fun. Plus, each book comes with a gigantic 1.8m free pull-out poster!
