These aircraft are the military’s best—they scramble into action in minutes, reach speeds of Mach 3, deploy missiles, and perform amazing acrobatic feats. So young plane enthusiasts will be flying high as they pore through this breathtaking volume, opening up gatefolds and gazing at every detail of these ultra-modern machines. Photos show them the plane’s thick outer hull, transport them right into the cockpit (including the ejection seat), and allow them to examine the engines, stabilizers, landing gear, wings, joystick, little black box, and more. Dozens of “plane facts” discuss the science behind such things as the sonic boom as well as piloting technique.
