Blériot, the impossible crossing

Combining human adventure and historic achievement, "Blériot, the impossible crossing" traces the history of this incredible challenge : the first flight across the English Channel in 1909. 110 years later, a team of Blériot XI enthusiasts will try the crazy gamble to fly their fully authentic reproduction of the aircraft across the channel, propelled, for the first time, by its original engine. This adventure highlights the real significance of the event, which marked the beginnings of aviation worldwild.
