Wings of Madness: The Daring Flights of Alberto Santos-Dumont

2007 Rated NR 56m

This hourlong "Nova" documentary profiles trailblazing Brazilian inventor Alberto Santos-Dumont, who piloted Europe's first plane flight but ultimately descended into despair and committed suicide. After flying a gas-powered dirigible balloon over Paris in 1901, Santos-Dumont gained worldwide fame, and his later aeronautical development work increased his celebrity -- until the Wright Brothers' growing reputation overshadowed his accomplishments.
