he author then moves on to the fighter planes of World War I and II, bombers, flying boats and the advent of jet transportation. Each development in flight pictured is accompanied by a descriptive paragraph, plus you'll also find a glossary of flight related words and a short list of important flying records.
o keep it safe, the book comes in a special slip cover case. When opened, it will stretch out to about five feet in length so it would make an attractive display on a bookshelf or table.
