Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités


The story is inspired by the early history of aviation, interweaving the lives of Orville and Wilbur Wright, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and her publisher George Putnam together with the German "Glider King", Otto Lielthal, and the English Commander, Richard Byrd. The separate but sympathetic quests of these famous figures have been linked together to create a musical collage of dream chasing . Wilbur and Orville squabble and scratch their heads, plagued by doubts at Kitty Hawk and worry about returning home to be mocked as eccentric failures; Charles Lindbergh faces ghosts from his past as the long hours pass during his Atlantic crossing; and Amelia Earhart makes history with her aerial exploits, risking disaster in her attempt to fly round the world and endangering her relationship with her publisher, George Putnam who finances her first transatlantic flight just to sell books and later pursues her hand in marriage.
