"This documentary tells the story of man's success in overcoming the forces of gravity. Opening with rare shots of early balloonists, the film moves on through weird looking early machines to show the first flights of the Wright brothers. Scenes from World War I follow and the story leads on up to present-day developments. The film was made in close co-operation with the Royal Aeronautical society."
