Win a copy of The Story of Flight From Jakob Whitfield

The Story of Flight is a fascinating one: from the earliest balloons and airships to the latest stealth jet, each breakthrough laid the foundation for the next.

Trace the extraordinary history of flight in this strikingly illustrated guide, from the Wright Flyer to cutting-edge drones.

Along the way, discover how the social upheavals of the past 240 years influenced the flight path: two world wars, equality for women and the fight against climate change.

Finally, explore the incredible inventions that await us in the future.

Jakob Whitfield has a degree in aeronautical engineering from Imperial College, and a doctorate in the history of technology from the University of Manchester.

He lives with his family in the West Midlands, where he writes about aeroplanes and other topics in the history of technology.
