Plot Summary
The year is 1910, and flying machines have taken hold of everyone's imagination. So a wealthy publisher, anxious to increase circulation, sets up a contest: he'll give a £10,000 prize to whoever's first to cross the English Channel in a plane. And it isn't long before a large group of greedy, ambitious folks are off and flying... hoping to win fortune and fame.
