Depicts the early years of aviation in the US
16 September 2001 | by (Montgomery, AL USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a ten-year old, and it made a profound impression on me regarding the dedication and sacrifices of the men who were involved in the development of aircraft and powerplants in the early days when aviation was in its infancy.

I would like to see it converted to video and made available again.
