In 1912 a French industrialist, Jacques Schneider, sensing their potential, promoted a competition destined to make his mark in the history of aviation: the Schneider Trophy.
For twenty years, pilots, industries and nations challenged to conquer it, collecting records some of which are still unbeaten in their categories, moving from precarious flying machines to indomitable monsters of speed and power.
