[ Yoko Tsuno ] -> [ Message pour l'Eternité ]
The telecommunications centre in Pleumeur-Bodou in Bretagne receives a last radio message from a British plane that disappeared in 1933. On board were secret documents from the British secret service. The message proves to originate in a crater in Afghanistan near the borders to the Sovjet Union and China. However, it appears to have been transmitted only seconds before its reception in France 50-some years later. In order to land in the crater a well qualified and slender pilot is needed; and Yoko accepts the challenge.
Again Leloup uses authentic locations. And exchanging the call-letter of an old, well documented series of air planes, he creates another plane for this issue.
The French title translates to
Message for Eternity.
