This third volume recounts the Wright Brothers, who invented the modern aeroplane. The brothers made the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight on 17 December 1903 and, in the two subsequent years, they developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed wing flight possible.
Jean-Pierre Lefevre-Garros has also collaborated with Marcel Uderzo on a graphic novel chronicling the small French town of Charenton-le-Pont. The latter has assisted his brother with inking Asterix and has illustrated over 25 comics (Marcel's older brother, Albert, is the world renowned Asterix illustrator). He has also adapted three novels by Jules Verne in graphic novel format.
