Real men build planes and fly them.
11 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hard to believe the progress of flight in the 20th century. From 1903 to 1940, the technological advance was as profound as the internet.

But in 1940,guys still built planes in their garages.

The planes were tested with fingers crossed.

A single guy would design a plane, build it and test it.

Some crashed, some died, some succeeded. This picture is all these stories,plus a little romance. Very entertaining.

This is the true story of Mc Lean Air Corp ( later acquired by Hughes himself).

Classic line: He shouldn't be allowed to go up in an elevator.
