This program is part of an informative PBS series that chronicles some of the outstanding events in American history. This episode takes the viewer back to the infancy of aeronautics. The Wright brothers and others had shown that people could fly; but it took a long time to develop the feasibility of commercial air travel accessible by the average person. The program follows the course of four airmen commissioned by the Army Air Service in 1924 to fly around the world, to test and publicize air travel. Not everyone finished the trip, which took almost six months to complete. Archival news footage, photographs, journals, personal accounts, and scholarly commentary re-creates the excitement of the Great Air Race of 1924.
