The Aeronauts was a French children’s TV series about two fighter jet pilots in French Air Force, Michel Tanguy (Jacques Santi) and Ernest Laverdure (Christian Marin) and their adventures.
It was based on a comic book series by Jean-Michel Charlier and Albert Uderzo titled Tanguy et Laverdure.
The head of the airbase receives a copy of a gambling debt signed by Tanguy. He may therefore be dismissed from the air force. Meanwhile there are problems with the oxygen supplies at high altitude.
