Living in the Age of Airplanes Review

Disclosure: Complimentary product was received for review purposes.



Synopsis:
LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES offers a fresh perspective on a modern-day miracle that many of us take for granted: flying. Narrated by Harrison Ford and featuring an original score from Academy Award® winning composer James Horner, the film takes viewers to 18 countries across all seven continents to illuminate how airplanes have empowered a century of global connectedness our ancestors could never have imagined.

Following its premiere at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC, the film continued its successful run on giant screen, digital, IMAX® and museum cinemas worldwide in 2015/2016. It will be released digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray in October 2016 along with the release of the original soundtrack.

LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES (Price: Blu-ray $32.95; introductory $29.95 through the Holidays. DVD $24.95) is directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right) and produced by Terwilliger and Bryan H. Carroll. Director of Photography is Andrew Waruszewski. Music is by James Horner (Avatar, Titanic). Editor is Brad Besser.



My oldest son is a little aviation geek. Not only does he love to travel, but he is an encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to airlines, aircraft, runways, airports, seat configurations, and more.

Therefore I knew he'd love watching Living in the Age of Airplanes.

In fact, the entire family loved watching it.

Narrated by Harrison Ford and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger, Living in the Age of Airplanes gives us a closer look at the wonders of aviation, and how integral airplanes are for everyday life.

We learned so much about airplanes, the evolution of transportation, and how they are a necessity in the world we live in today.

The information relayed was easy enough for my kids to understand, and the beautiful imagery kept them engaged.

The scenes of airplanes - the details of the engines, the wings, the livery, as they take-off, fly, and land, were fantastic.

The images on screen were absolutely stunning. It was like a living atlas, showcasing turquoise oceans, breathtaking waterfalls, and ancient sites.

It was a lot of fun for my kids to identify places they've been to, as well as to see places they hope to visit one day (even I got excited seeing popular attractions in different countries).

Airplanes allow people to take a step back in history; to reach others across the globe; to come together to share ideas.

Airplanes touch our lives in so many different ways, even for those who never step foot on a plane!

Living in the Age of Airplanes is wonderful for not only those enthusiastic about airplanes, but for anyone with a love for history or travel. 

It really gave me a better appreciation for airplanes, and made me wanted to travel even more!
