This article is intended to introduce the young reader to the relationship between flight and fluid dynamics. It begins with a somewhat detailed discussion of what makes flight possible. Following this is a description of the effect of the nature of the flow on the drag. The connection between flow stability and drag-reduction, which is a topic of current interest in the aerospace industry, is discussed in the concluding section.
