From a former RAF technician, a unique and gorgeously illustrated celebration of humankind's most ambitious undertaking: flight
FLIGHT is the story of humankind's most ambitious undertaking. From thousand-year-old flying machines and the trailblazing 'birdmen' who risked their lives to test them, to the Wright brothers' legendary first flight and the iconic spacecraft of the modern era, FLIGHT weaves together the extraordinary history of aviation with an in-depth look at the mechanics of how planes work. Spellbinding, sumptuously illustrated, and written by a former RAF technician, this is the definitive guide to how we conquered the skies.
