"The Channel crossing", Louis Blériot , 1909 - oil on canvas

Blériot, 1909 carte postale


55 x 38 cm
Pierre-Marie Unal (France)

After half an hour flying, Louis Blériot can see the English coast. He gets lost for a moment in the mist, and ask a fishing boat which direction to go. The coast is visible again and after a while he spots a man waving with a French flag in the fracture of a cliff. Despite a rough landing, Blériot makes his dream come true : doing the very first sea crossing by airplane !
