Synopsis

1908. Henri Farman completes a flight from Châlons-en-Champagne to Reims in 27 minutes. This sees Marne become the birthplace of aviation. Five years later war is raging. Military aeronautics offer new strategic and technical possibilities and have a major influence on the balance of power and the men behind these machines become true modern-day knights such as Fonck, Guynemer and so many others whose acts make the front page of the national newspapers. Reconnaissance and fighter planes and bombers turn the skies above Marne into a new battlefield.
