9780070520219: Mach 1 and Beyond: The Illustrated Guide to High-Speed Flight

This compelling book opens up the world of high-speed flight to readers who do not have extensive technical backgrounds. Covering both subsonic and supersonic flight, it demystifies the world of high-speed aerodynamics, flight principles, gas turbine jets, and more. You'll learn why there are no supersonic airliners, what problems confront designers of 2,000-mph aircraft, and whether or not a hypersonic, or Mach 5, airplane is likely to be built.
