Not convinced? Here is the trailer to the documentary:
Airplanes are some of the be biggest machines invented. This documentary pushes the cinematic envelop in our obsessions with how flying machines evolved from steam to jet engines. It included black and white archived footages combined with ultra high definition shots of today.
IMAX is the perfect medium to showcase these marvels and allow the audience to submerge into the experience (refer to some of the promotional shots below courtesy of National Geographic).
This is a documentary not to be missed for any airplane enthusiasts. See you at the theaters.
