Bleriot’s Channel Flight Remembered

The Associated Press posted this little video on YouTube showing the take-off of one of two French pilots on July 2th, commemorating Bleriot’s first flight across the Channel from Les Barraques to Dover, 100 years ago!
They used one replica and one restored original to do the flight. Many other pilots were stopped by the French authorities becasue of deteriorating weather that day.
