The Magic of Flight DVD in IMAX takes you to the skies as you soar into the world of aviation. Using HD cameras, filmmakers fly higher and faster than ever before and capture the magic as the amazing pilots defy gravity. In the Blue Angels DVD The Magic of Flight, you go from the Wright Brothers' first flight to the Blue Angels' flips and spins.
The Magic of Flight DVD has you fly with the U.S. Navy's elite Blue Angels demonstration squadron in the breathtaking video The Magic of Flight, which explains the basic principles of what enables airplanes (and birds) to fly, what creates lift, how planes maneuver, how planes land again. Going back to the Wright Brothers' experiments at Kitty Hawk, the documentary explores how the intrepid bicycle makers ruminated on the elements of flight for many an hour before even attempting to assemble their first aircraft. In the Blue Angels DVD, The Blue Angels put into action the discoveries made by the Wright Brothers, as they make their selections, train, and perform.
Pilots push their high-performance fighter planes through difficult but graceful maneuvers for amazed air-show audiences, demonstrating where the state of the art really lies for 21st-century flying. The modern aircraft DVD shows that for all the skills of the pilots, the most astonishing part of the video would have to be the camera work, with cameras mounted on the planes' bellies, noses, and cockpits to give an up-close view of what the machines are really capable of. Planes fly arm's length apart during maneuvers where the slightest misstep would mean certain catastrophe. The Magic of Flight Discovery DVD does indeed go a long way toward capturing the wonder of flying, with spectacular camera work, editing, and production.
Shop for The Magic of Flight DVD, and fly high as the experience of aviators is pushed to the test and shown to you in high definition.
