What's it about?
On the morning of July 25, 1909, Louis Bleriot took off from the coast of France in his Model XI monoplane. About 37 minutes later, he landed on the white cliffs of Dover, England, pulling off the first long-distance flight over water and the first crossing of a national boundary. Captures the thrilling formative years of flight, when the French were mad about airplanes and tried everything to fly.
What's in it?
The siren call of aviation -- Too much imagination -- "The Prince of Bad Luck" -- An international hero.
