Description

On the morning of July 25, 1909, Louis Bleriot set out on his epic flight across the English Channel, marking the first long-distance flight over water and the first air crossing of a national boundary. Bleriot's triumph came after years of experiments with primitive flying machines and innumerable crashes-a story of perseverance and ingenuity as memorable as that of his competitors, the Wrights. A Daring Flight dramatizes Louis Bleriot's colorful story through the present-day quest of his grandson to relive his family heritage and repeat the heroic cross-channel flight-a quest that will prove both dangerous and elusive.
