Aviation was still in its early days when the Société Anonyme Belge d'Exploitation de la Navigation Aérienne was founded. Thirteen unique archive films narrate the rise and fall of Sabena, featuring the different facets and periods: the first small-scale civil aviation experiments in Haren, the increasingly longer routes, the fleet in constant evolution, the flights to Belgian Congo, the experiments with the helicopter at the end of the fifties and the coming of jet aircraft, reflecting what has become our faster, more hectic way of life. In the booklet, aviation expert Etienne Reunis gives a comprehensive, detailed account of the Sabena saga and ten privileged Sabena actors retell the story from a more personal perspective.
