Summary:
"This book -- The Challenge Met -- tells the story of the air-tour 'Together in Europe with the Blériot' which took place in the second half of July, 1989, with the participation of fifteen Italian pilots and flight devotés in their classic aircraft. The title, however refers expressly to an event which, in the sphere of the tour, was by far the most gratifying: the successful attempt made by Giancarlo Zanardo, pilot and builder of historic aircraft, to repeat the first air crossing of the English Channel with a replica of the plane used by French pioneer Louis Bériot eight years before."--Dust jacket, back flap.
