This book gives a lot of information about the techniques and abilities for planes to fly. The first fiction book I thought to compare it with is Harry Potter.

I only wish the cross-section of the jet was larger, because I love cross-sections and in this one, everything is so small, you don't get a sense of all the different areas of the plane.

"Airplanes" is part of the "True Book"...more
