Flyers: In Search of a Dream

1987 Rated NR 1hr

Looking beyond popular aviation trailblazers such as Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh and the Wright brothers, this fascinating documentary chronicles the groundbreaking achievements of unsung black fliers. Segments focus on Bessie Coleman, the first African-American -- man or woman -- to earn a pilot's license, and James Herman Banning, who teamed with Thomas C. Allen in 1932 to become the first black aviators to log a transcontinental flight.
