This historical story is told as if the plane was talking, i.e. it is from the plane’s point of view.

Because of its unique and colourful subject material, the book is also ideal for older children and young adults who have a reading difficulty.  It is well illustrated and has impressive full-page colour “real life” action photographs.

Extension of the average child’s vocabulary has been attempted with unusual words being numbered and itemized explanations given at the bottom of each page.

The author is a teacher of young children and mother of three.
