7 Typical airplanes have three wheels as part of the landing gear. Below: Taildraggers have their third wheel in the back.Above: Tricycle gear, like a bike, has a third wheel in the front.
8 Fuel tanks are usually located inside the wings.
9 Airplanes have windshields just like a car Airplanes have windshields just like a car. Light airplanes don’t need wipers as the propeller blast clears rain away.

13 The elevator (on horizontal stabilizer) moves up (or down) to force the nose of the airplane up (or down.)1. ADD: new top photo: Full length of airplane with UP elevator. Add UP arrow at nose of plane2. Fix red paren in TITLE3. BOTTOM PHOTO: Point arrow to elevator, not trim tab!
14 The rudder (on the vertical stabilizer) moves the airplane’s nose left or right, helping it turn. Fix red paren in TITLE2. ADD two overhead photos Left/RightLEFT: Left rudder deflection, left arrow at noseRIGHT: Right rudder deflection, right arrow at nosePush left rudder pedal and the plane turns leftPush right rudder pedal and the plane turns right
15 Flaps on the wings change the shape of the wing to provide more lift and drag. This allows the airplane to fly slower.Flaps down
