Love has Wings
Teasure in French (2:35 min)
Through the eyes of a first class bush pilot, Thomas Fecteau, and his wife, Francoise Gaudreau, a surveyor’s daughter, Love has Wings explores the history of Quebec aviation and the country’s development. Although both Thomas and Françoise were from southern Quebec, they met beyond the 48th parallel and formed a delightful couple for over six decades.
More than a documentary about aviation, the film is also filled with love stories linking passion and vulnerability: the love of aviation and the insecurity of flight conditions; the love of nature and the challenges of an austere way of life; the love between Francoise and Thomas, which thrived despite distance and worries.
Love has Wings will appeal to many flying enthusiasts, from bush pilots to astronauts, but also to anyone who loves nature, history and great love stories!
