From the first prototypes of flying machines to today's supersonic jets, the history and roles of aircraft are explored in this beautifully illustrated guide.

Aviation enthusiasts of all stripes and ages will welcome learning more about key brands and big players from yesterday and today — whether it's the marvels of hot air balloons or the fantastic engines of Boeing, Lockheed, and more.

Planes are divided equally between military and commercial aircraft, and iconic aircraft of each era, such as the Supermarine Spitfire and Concorde, are showcased in beautifully photographed spreads with "virtual tours" that reveal the anatomy of these legendary planes.

Produced in association with the Smithsonian Institution.
