Macaulay invites readers to enjoy a flight, then shows and describes the plane's behavior on takeoff, during flight, and landing. His masterful drawings include just enough detail to clearly illustrate difficult concepts. He adds visual metaphor to strengthen his points, and uses angles and cross sections to reveal unique plane parts and systems associated with an everyday flight. Macaulay makes learning fun and fascinating.
Publisher Summary
The Caldecott Medal-winning creator of The Way Things Work presents a fact-filled, visual profile of the jet plane that details its modern workings and scientific principles. Simultaneous.

Go on an airplane ride.

It weighs as much as 100 elephants, but it can fly for hours. How does a jet do that? From the engine that provides the power and wings that lift the plane off the ground to the cockpit controls and passenger cabin, see how these modern marvels work and what makes them stay in the air.
