In “Milestones of Aviation” VIDICOM features pioneers of flying and recounts their triumphs and tragedies. The films benefit from VIDICOM’s extensive archive of historic aviation footage.
The documentary honours the legendary Super Constellation, the first passenger airplane to cross the Atlantic non-stop after World War II.
Private videos and pictures that the protagonists have kept from their first flight to the New World will add an amusing and personal note to the film.
