Using spectacular aerial and nature photography, Living in the Age of Airplanes takes audiences to 95 locations in 18 countries to remind us how, in a single century, aviation has changed our world forever.
This immersive new giant screen film from National Geographic Studios presents a fresh perspective on a modern-day miracle that many of us take for granted: flying. The film highlights the rapid advancements that have led to a world in which 100,000 flights take off and land every day.
Narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford and produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), Living in the Age of Airplanes features an original score by the late Academy Award®-winning composer and pilot James Horner (Avatar, Titanic) and cinematography by Andrew Waruszewski.
"Since we were all born into a world with airplanes, it's hard to imagine that jet travel itself is only 60 years old, just a tick on the timeline of human history," said producer/director Brian J. Terwilliger. "With this film, we want to reignite people's wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world."
