Eye Watering Documentary
23 September 2018 | by miguelcruzworkSee all my reviews

Unlike what was said on other reviews this documentary should be seen as a whole and not something specific. Simply enjoy its beauty and specially the connection between the plane and the people that were involved in flying the most beautiful plane ever made.
