A great documentary on the significance of the first cross-channel flight that marked the beginning of aviation.

This is the story of a French aviator and his incredible challenge: the first ever overseas flight across the English Channel in 1909. 110 years later, a team of Blériot XI enthusiasts makes the crazy gamble to fly their fully authentic reproduction of the aircraft, propelled, for the first time, by its original engine.
