"With nothing more than paper, ruler, pencil, scissors, glue stick, and this all-color extravaganza of super fliers, you can create 28 different planes that really zip through the air--and that demonstrate the history of modern flight. Each flier is complete with historical, technical, and scientific information, as well as detailed diagrams and instructions, and a full-color photo."--Holmestead Aviation Library.
Instructions and diagrams for making paper flyers, from famous aircraft models to models of flying saucers and spaceships. "Paper Flight" also explores flight through the art of origami to make birds, butterflies, and other airborne creations.
