“Those Magnificent men”

A performance to mark the centenary of the first non-stop trans-Atlantic flight by pilot Capt. John Alcock and navigator Lt. Arthur Whitten Brown in a modified Vickers Vimy bomber. Magnificent Men is the nail-biting, side-splitting true story of this daredevil flight told in the stage play ‘Those Magnificent Men’ by writing duo Mitchell & Nixon. Seated in an open cockpit, they flew from Newfoundland through dense fog, sleet, snow and hail to Ireland and worldwide celebrity.
