Strap yourself into the cockpit and fly along with daring U.S. airmen as they attempt the impossible and change the course of aviation history. Today, few know about the first flight around the world or the men who flew it, though it remains one of aviation's most important milestones. Three years before Lindbergh's transatlantic flight, eight U.S. aviators boarded four Douglas World Cruisers in a race with five other countries to complete the first around-the-world flight. It was an odyssey that ended 175 days later when two U.S. biplanes and four crewmen became the first to circumnavigate Earth by air. Join us as we chronicle the amazing adventure through the pilots' firsthand accounts, reenactments using similar planes, archival footage, and 3D graphics.
