After an half hour flying, Louis Blériot can see the English Coasts. He gets lost for a moment in the mist, and ask a fisher 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 split of the a cliff. Despite a rude landing, Blériot makes his dream come true : doing the very first sea crossing by airplane !
