Henri Giffard has devoted all his free time and money to making a balloon with a steam engine so it can be flown anywhere, not just drift on the wind. In 1852 he sets off for Paris with just an urchin girl to help him. Tens of thousands gather to see if his marvellous machine will work. The amazing story of the first man to achieve powered flight. Ages 8+.
