"...projects, based on historical prototypes, are very detailed, and the finished products are colorful and airworthy."—Library Journal

With nothing more than paper, rules, pencil, scissors, glue, and this all-color extravaganza of super fliers, construct 18 different planes that really zip through the air—and tell the story of modern flight. Start with the Aero Bat, modeled after the first, birdlike planes developed a century ago. Work up to the biplane, the design the Wright brothers used, and progress to the SST Concept, a model so futuristic it's based on a plane that hasn't yet been built. Each flier has historical, technical, and scientific background, detailed diagrams and instructions, and a full-color photograph that offers decorating suggestions. It's fun, it's hands-on, and it makes time really FLY!

I was 9 years old when I first saw this was amazing, the best the library had to offer on the subject. These planes are both remarkable accurate in design and fly like nothing else. They're also easy enough to build that anyone above 2nd grade could build them. Great book!
