Planes by Chris Oxlade

How do planes fly? How many people can an ultralight carry? How does a space shuttle land? This book looks at types of planes that are used for travel, work, and fun. Jet airliners fly thousands of feet above the ground. Harrier jets can take off without a runway. Some planes even go out into space!
