Zack Scott, author of Apollo and Scrapers, here charts the development of the wing, from the rudimentary attempts of the Birdmen (who frequently died trying to fly relatively short distances with homemade 'wings') to the infinitely more sophisticated technology of today.Elegant and eloquent, Flight sheds light upon normally impenetrable theory, illuminating the tenets of aviation with engaging infographics and dynamic photos of aircraft.What emerges is not simply a detailed chronology but an involving, stimulating and endlessly satisfying account of aerodynamics and human endeavour.
