Waiting out the weather- July 25, 1909 Louis Blériot French aviator and crew were up early checking to see if the weather was going give him break today. Scanning the sky for any signs of clearing in the dense fog, that hung over the Channel. Blériot on crutches from injurers from a previous flying mishap, took a along look in the direction of the Channel threw his crutches to the ground and declared “I can’t walk but I can fly”, climbing into the cockpit of the tiny airplane he had designed and built the Blériot XI. And 27 miles and 45 minutes, later he touched down in DoverEngland. A major success for aviation. This feat won him a prize of £1,000 offered by the LondonDaily Mail and resulted in his emergence as one of the leading aircraft pilots and manufacturers of the era.
