The Magic of Flight: IMAX narrated by Tom Selleck explores the history of human flight through fixed wing aircraft. Beginning with the Wright brothers' first basic experiments in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina at the turn of the century and concluding with the rigorous training of today's U.S. Navy's Blue Angels' advanced jet aircraft. This mind-boggling documentary deftly navigates the history of aviation using cameras mounted on the bellies, noses and cockpits of airplanes. The Magic of Flight: Imax gives us an up-close view of what these spectacular flying machines are capable of as well as the camerawork necessary to capture it all on film. The Blue Angels prove to us the discoveries made by the Wright Brothers, as they make their selections, train, and perform. The elite navy pilots push their high-performance fighter planes through difficult but graceful maneuvers, thrilling air-show audiences in awe of their magnificence, demonstrating where the cutting edge really lies for 21st-century flying.
