Twelve years after the Wright Brothers pioneer powered flight, the aeroplane has become a deadly killing machine. This drama documentary traces the pioneering efforts of Britain and France in the early days of aviation, the struggle to master the unfamiliar, untested business of aerial warfare and the bitter fighting as the airmen of both nations challenge German pilots in the skies above the Trenches. We learn how early tactics were determined – this was air warfare at its beginnings. We discover the crucial role the airman played in the campaign, the men who flew the vulnerable, outdated, observation machines. They were the eyes of the big guns of the artillery, summoning a storm of accurate fire crashing down upon the enemy, pulverising men and material in an effort to break the stalemate of a prolonged and brutal conflict.
