Turbulent Skies 

Turbulent Skies

As founders of the Dutch aviation, idealist Albert Plesman and opportunist Anthony Fokker, are inextricably bound together. They cannot live with or without each other. During the interwar period and in spite of their differences, they pull off setting up civil aviation in the Netherlands, when the world is heading for a new war.

The series is developed with the support of the NPO Fund, the Creative Europe Programme – MEDIA of the European Union and the Netherlands Production Incentive for high-end TV-series.
