The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot July 25, 1909 is the story of Louis Bleriot one of the great pioneers in aviation. In The Glorious Flight Louis is determined to build an airplane and eventually succeeds in flying across the English Channel.
This is a great book to read when studying aviation as well as France during the early 1900’s. If you live near an air and space museum a visit to the museum would really make this book come alive.
