Any child fascinated by airplanes will enjoy paging through this picture book that features different types. The rhymed text begins, 'Planes have engines, planes have wings lifted by the air that sings.'

Next are a few early bi-planes and tri-planes as well as a streamlined jet. Besides picturing various types of flying machines, the author takes the young reader into the cockpit of a passenger jet and also up to the tower where planes are controlled as they arrive or depart at the airport.

Seaplanes, firefighting bombers and the president's plane, Air Force One, are pictured along with the interior of a big passenger plane and people saying good-bye to the aircraft's captain as they deplane.
