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.

Interesting enough documentary on a fairly forgotten part of aviation history. The challenges of the flight, the pressures the pilots faced, and the logistical efforts made are well laid out.
