Flight: The Passionate Affair (Miniseries) (1976)

Flight: The Passionate Affair was Patrick Watson's four-part series recalling Canada's role in the development of aviation. Canada entered the age of flight when Alexander Graham Bell successfully flew his Silver Dart at Lake Bras d'Or, N.S., on Feb. 23, 1909. By 1918, Canada had supplied 25 per cent of the pilots flying for the Allied forces in World War I; had built some 10,000 Curtiss JN-4 (Jenny) trainers; and had provided the budding United States Air Force with most of its original instructors.
