Summary
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. A Daring Flight captures the thrilling formative years of flight, when the French were mad about airplanes and tried everything to fly
