Description by

An international air race means sky-high adventure and fun!

This extraordinary comic version of the historic 1910 London-to-Paris air race features the greatest aviators from around the world. They all come together when a stuffy, but very rich, newspaper publisher decides to sponsor an airplane race across the English Channel, offering 10,000 pounds to the winner. The escapades between the American, British, French, German, Italian and Japanese teams result in the most daring and hilarious in-flight acrobatic stunts ever caught on film.

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.
