National Geographic Studios Presents “Living In The Age of Airplanes”

OSHKOSH, WIS. – National Geographic Studios has an immersive new giant screen film experience that offers a fresh perspective on the modern-day miracle most people take for granted: flying. Using spectacular aerial and nature photography, “Living In The Age of Airplanes” carries audiences across 200,000 years of history and around the globe on an epic journey to 95 locations in 18 countries spanning seven continents to remind us how, in a single century, aviation has changed our world forever.

The world premiere of “Living In The Age of Airplanes” took place at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., on April 8, 2015. A special viewing was presented during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in July and Midwest Flyer Magazine was there.

The film was passionately narrated by pilot/actor Harrison Ford through every breathtaking scene. Pilots interested in fostering and safeguarding aviation will appreciate the film’s appeal to general audiences, and its reminder of how aviation affects everyone’s life.

Produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (“One Six Right”), “Living In The Age of Airplanes” features an original score by Academy Award®-winning composer and pilot James Horner (“Avatar,” “Titanic”) and cinematography by Andrew Waruszewski.

The film highlights the astonishingly rapid advancements that have led to a world in which 100,000 flights take off and land every day.

Terwilliger was on hand at the preview at Oshkosh to get feedback from reporters and to answer questions. He is a private pilot and owns a Cessna 182 Skylane.

“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 Terwilliger. “With this film, we want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world.”
