Produced by National Geographic Studios, the film includes scenes in 18 countries across all 7 continents and through stunning visuals, explores the many ways aviation affects our lives as one of the most extraordinary and awe-inspiring aspects of the modern world. The documentary is produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), narrated by acclaimed actor Harrison Ford, and features an original score by Academy Award® winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic). The film highlights the astonishingly rapid advancements that have led to a world in which 100,000 flights take off and land every day. During the vast majority of mankind’s existence, walking was the fastest means of travel. Yet today, just 175 years after the introduction of the steam engine, boarding a jet to travel thousands of miles in a matter of hours is more often viewed as an inconvenience rather than a world-changing technological marvel.
