A Nation Soars is a trilogy of documentaries narrated by Dan Aykroyd that explore how aviation changed the course of the First World War, such as its vital part in Canada's nation-defining victory at Vimy Ridge. From the early days of flight in 1914 to the aerial photography that produced the battle-winning maps of Vimy Ridge, A Nation Soars offers a fascinating and refreshing look at Canada's part in the Great War.
