(Video) "Living in the Age of Airplanes" for the first time on board an Emirates Airbus A380
Living in the Age of Airplanes offers a new perspective on a modern miracle that we use daily: flight. Narrated by Harrison Ford, the documentary shows how airplanes managed to connect the world in less than a century, a phenomenon our forefathers couldn't imagine.
Living in the Age of Airplanes was filmed in 95 locations, from 18 countries and 7 continents, over several years. It highlights the amazing rapid advances in aviation that have led to a world where over 100 000 flights take off or land every day.
It's been 175 years since the introduction of the steam engine and only 100 years since the first commercial flight. And yet, boarding a plane to travel thousands of miles in just a few hours is perceived as an inconvenience and not a miracle of technology. But for many of us, the plane is one of the safest means of transportation in the world. Will succeed "Living in the age of Airplanes"To change people's perception of airplanes and flight?
