Ever wonder what it's like to fly the world's largest passenger plane? You're about to find out!

This flight manual puts you in the pilot's seat -- and gives you all the dirt on how the 747 takes off, lands, and finds its way across vast distances.

The book describes what's in the cockpit, how each mechanism works, and how to use each in order to fly an airplane. And it's all been approved and supported by Boeing, so you know you're getting the most cutting-edge information possible.

Features a double-sided poster containing more information about the 747 and full-color, insider's view of a real cockpit; a cutout model 747; stickers to place on the model plane (and on yourself!); and a Pilot's Handbook.

Boys love airplanes, and this fabulous book gives them fascinating facts, fun do-it-yourself activities, and instructions on how to fly a 747
