This video presents the success story of Bernie Little, who went from Depression-era junior high school dropout to aviation pioneer. Little developed a passion for the hydroplane, whose light weight enabled flights of over 140 miles per hour. The speed attracted the attention of August Busch, president of the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company. The two men soon formulated the Miss Budweiser flying team, a campaign that has lasted for over 30 years. Archival film footage shows the hydroplane in action at top speed.
