Planes and Trains

 


Planes and Trains

I like giraffes and big airplanes
Really fast choo choo trains
Hippos and Rhinos, gorillas too
And funny little monkeys at the zoo

I like the zoo and loud loud planes
Big and fast choo choo trains
Trains run on a railroad track
An engine in front caboose in back

I like to watch the trains go by
Fast airplanes in the sky
Baby seals who like to play
And Billy goats eating hay

I like the zoo and loud loud planes
Big and fast choo choo trains
Trains run on a railroad track
An engine in front, caboose in back
An engine in front, caboose in back
An engine in front, caboose in back

Airplane Facts For Kids Planes and Trains

Check out our fun airplane facts for kids and enjoy learning about different aircraft.

Find information on commercial planes, drones, wings, engines, the history of flight and much more. Read on for a wide range of interesting trivia and information related to airplanes.

Airplanes are fixed-wing aircraft that are propelled through the air by engines.

  • They are used for transportation, recreation, research and military purposes.

  • Engines provide the thrust needed to move a plane forward, overcoming drag and allowing the wings to create lift.

  • Aircraft wings feature a shape called an airfoil which is designed to create lift as the plane moves through the air.

  • The long, thin body of an aircraft is typically called the fuselage.

  • Pilots usually control the plane from a cockpit located at the front of the fuselage.

  • Some aircraft (usually military or experimental) are capable of supersonic flight (breaking the sound barrier) by traveling at speeds faster than sound (1235kph, 768mph). There have only been two commercial aircraft capable of supersonic transport, the most well known of these was the Concorde which flew between major cities such as London, New York and Paris until 2003.
