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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This giant-screen rhapsody on the power of airplanes to revolutionize the world winds up offering little more than an endorsement of the tourism and shopping industries. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Apr 9, 2015

Fresh: As a sunny depiction of what to expect and what's been accomplished, the movie is nearly seamless, but is that all there is? – John Hartl, Seattle Times, May 28, 2015

Customer Reviews

One of the greatest documentaries on aviation

This outstanding film truly communicates the spirit and the wonder of civil aviation through impecable photography, uplifting music and the beautiful narration by Harrison Ford. This is a movie, not only for those who are passionate for aviation, but for everyone who has ever looked up at the sky and wondered about how we made it this far, that fast.


Amazing. Beautiful. Inspiring. Gorgeous.

It's a wonderful documentary

like the movie says, we were born in the age of airplane and we take it for granted and never thought of how great it is. This documentary makes you realize how amazing living in the age of airplane and how the life has been changed since then. It has changed the way how I see about the flying in future.
Totally love this documentary and highly recommended.
