This series -- Harper's Young America's Aviation Library, edited by Norman V. Carlisle, -- is making a place for itself in the slowly growing shelf of sound basic texts on modern aviation for younger readers. This is a good addition. Discusses the design and building of a plane from the first ""idea man"" to the various designers, engineers, and aerodynamicists, right through to the test pilot. Particularly suitable for the young model builder. Attractive jacket and clear text and diagrams.
