Description

Whether we love it or hate it, millions of us fly every day – but very few of us really understand how it works. Who hasn’t looked out of a plane window and thought, ‘how are we actually staying up here?’ The Flying Book will surprise, reassure and entertain anyone who’s ever taken to the skies, and reveals (amongst other things)-

How a plane gets airborne (It’s not what you were taught at school) That there’s no such thing as an air pocket Why the captain and co-pilot always eat different meals during a flight Whether all the stories about DVT are true Why pilots aren’t allowed to have beards That flying really is the safest form of transport ever (apart from the lift) And, why it is a very bad idea to flush the plant toilet while you’re sitting on it
