Living in the Age of Airplanes is a story about how the airplane has changed the world. Not long ago,traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and things between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, it explores the countless ways aviation affects our lives (even when we don't fly).

 

With stunning visuals, the film renews our appreciation for one of the most extraordinary and awe-inspiring aspects of the modern world. The documentary is produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), narrated by Harrison Ford,and features an original score by Academy Award winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic). The Airbus IMAX Theater at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center houses the biggest IMAX screen in Northern Virginia. The Airbus IMAX Theater is among the first in the world to feature the latest IMAX laser projection system.This film is presented in 2D
