From the time when each new flight was a curious adventure, to the jets of today that we often take for granted, Andrew Dewar offers an enthralling view of historic airplanes. Wilbur and Orville Wright's Wright Flyer, Louis Bleriot's XI, the Avro Type-F, and many more classics are presented with notes, photographs, and illustrations.

Re-experience the wonders of flight with Paper Airplanes that Really Fly!, an exciting new series of papercraft books with everything you need to make model airplanes that actually fly. Fun and unique, these paper airplanes are completely lifelike and three-dimensional, with wings, stabilizers, struts, wheels, cockpits, fuselages, and authentic colors and markings. By using the simplest of tools, you can easily make graceful airplanes that look exactly like the originals, which you can gently let fly on a breeze or launch with a rubber band. These airplanes can even have flight times of up to a minute. Certain models also have simple rubber-band motors for self-powered flight.
