Listen to an audio clip

To the right of the wing is a long slim shape with a round end. Can you feel this? This is a wheel; again there is another one on the other side. Now move left, over the wing, and feel the tail section. This is shaped like the wing, but smaller. Above this feel the rounded curve of the tail fin. On the left is the rudder, a moveable flap which the pilot uses to control the plane. Now trace right to feel a short raised line sticking up. This is the pilot's radio aerial for him to keep in touch with people on the ground. To the right of this is the smooth, curved dome of the glass cockpit where the pilot sits.
