The incredible skill and bravery of these guys - unjustified optimism too.

When Bleriot crossed the channel, I believe that was the first time the engine he used had ever kept running for long enough to get there. When Amundsen and Ellsworth failed to reach the N Pole in 1925, they took 3 weeks building a runway on the pack ice to get airborn again. How many more incredible stories are there?
