As the subject says, if you don't like planes, don't by this book. If you're like me, however and like aeroplanes as in I like to breathe, then go ahead, buy it. Well, at least as a gift for a young 'un that you're trying to bring up in the ways of aviation!

It has numerous snippets of trivia as well as superb illustration of various moments in aviation history. Thoroughly recommended for the youngish in age, and youngish at heart.

Video for my Class 6 April 2013
By Nancy Mosher - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I rated this a 5 because everything worked out perfect for me. It was an interesting video that went well with my lessons plans for the day. I received the video quickly so I could preview it and write up a study guide with answers for the substitute. I also loved the price.

Nine-year-old Nephew Loved It 31 Dec. 2013
By JM - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My nine-year-old nephew is into all things planes right now. I figured he wouldn't have this book yet since it was last printed in the 90s, and I was right. He absolutely loved it and pored over it very closely. The images are beautiful and detailed, and the written definitions are neither written for young children nor for absolute experts.
