Living in the Age of Airplanes, formerly known as Aviation: The Invisible Highway, will be distributed by National Geographic Studios and is slated for a worldwide release day of April 10, 2015.

From the National Geographic Press Release:

Produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), Living in the Age of Airplanes is narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford and features an original score by Academy Award-winning composer and pilot James Horner (Avatar, Titanic). The film was shot in 95 locations around the globe, from remote places like the South Pole and the Maldives to historically significant sites of ancient civilizations. The narrative weaves together the profound ways that aviation has transformed our lives, connecting countries and cultures while expanding horizons and minds.

“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. “Yet practically overnight, our perception of crossing continents and oceans at 500 mph has turned from fascination to frustration. I want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world.”

Living in the Age of Airplanes is the perfect film for National Geographic,” said Mark Katz, president of distribution for National Geographic Studios. “Its visuals are breathtaking, it tells an amazing story and will engage audiences on a variety of levels, from adventure to geography to exploration and more, which aligns completely with National Geographic’s mission to inspire, illuminate and teach.”
