Which is the fastest animal in the air and of all ?

Most people know that on the land cheetah is the fastest animal, as well as one of the most beautiful. It can run at 112 km an hour but only for a few hundred metres. In the sea the sailfish is the fastest fish- it can swim at 110 km an hour. That is only two kilometres an hour slower than the cheetah.

In the air falcon is the fastest bird, with a speed of 100 kilometres an hour in level flight. But when it dives down it flies at an amazing 440 kilometres an hour. So the cheetah is a little faster than the sailfish, but the fastest of all is the falcon.
