As one might gather from the title, this British documentary details the history of aeronautics, beginning with the primitive turn of the century attempts that preceded the Wright brothers' successful flight. Narrated by Richard Todd, 100 Years of Flight details the people who were at the forefront of early air-travel, the impact of Charles Limburgh's cross-Atlantic flight, the role of aircraft in warfare, the emergence of the commercial airline industry, and contemporary flight.
