Wonderful for a boy interested in aviation.
31 July 1999 | by (Magalia, California) – See all my reviews

The flying replicas (except for one!) pre-dated films such as Those Magnificent Men---. As a thirteen-year-old who saw it on first release, I was impressed and wanted to see the airplanes again and again. If available on video, I'd buy it in a minute. The story and the people were not a part of my interest then, so I have no comment about story line or persona.
