What else are we watching?
Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, “Living in the Age of Airplanes” explores the countless ways aviation affects our lives. In a cinematically beautiful trip around the world, narrated by pilot and aviation enthusiast Harrison Ford, the film reconnects viewers to the miracle of flight by illustrating society’s reliance on it.
The documentary “One Six Right” celebrates the unsung hero of aviation — the local airport — by tracing the life, history, and struggles of an airport icon: Southern California’s Van Nuys Airport. A visual and musical ode to general aviation, the film dispels common misconceptions and opposes criticism of municipal airports and shares the romance of flying.
You Can’t Fly Without Us
Of course, once your guests are bursting with aviation enthusiasm, make sure they remember that without good mechanics, nobody takes off.
