A visually stunning and surprisingly moving documentary will be out on DVD and Blu-Ray in October that offers a fresh perspective on a modern-day miracle that many of us take for granted.


“Living In The Age Of Airplanes,” narrated by Harrison Ford and featuring an original score from Academy Award-winning composer James Horner, 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, D.C. last year, the film continued its successful run on giant screen, digital, IMAX and museum cinemas worldwide. It will be released digitally in October 2016 along with the release of the original soundtrack.

As Bill Gates said in the documentary, “The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas and values together,” and that’s exactly what this film proves.

“Living In The Age Of Airplanes” attempts to encourage people to appreciate the luxuries we enjoy today of being able to board a plane and then walk back off halfway across the world. “You have a lot of disgruntled passengers where their focus is on the inconvenience and the delays,” director Brian J. Terwilliger said. “My hope with this film is that it inspires audiences to see aviation with a new sense of appreciation and awe."

Here’s the trailer for the film.
