Synopsis:
 Shot down over Europe in 1918, decorated American pilot Charlie Halifax believes his luck has finally abandoned him. Disfigured and demoralized, he deserts from France’s famed Lafayette Escadrille, only to be captured, convicted, and sentenced to twenty years in the Foreigh Legion. He serves in Africa, where, along with a motley group of convicts and outcasts, Halifax is forced to fly illegal arms shipments to the very tribesmen they have been sent to fight. But a dream keeps Halifax alive even as his companions fall to harm or misery-the relentless determination to become the first pilot to fly nonstop from Paris to New York.
