Living in the Age of Airplanes

Yes, the airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much?

Living in the Age of Airplanes renews our appreciation for this amazing invention as it stunningly conveys the wonder and grandeur of flying.

Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine.

Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, the film explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives (even when we don’t fly). With a fascinating take on history, breathtaking visuals, soaring music, and a truly unique perspective, Living in the Age of Airplanes shows the airplane in a fresh light as it takes audiences on a wondrous trip around the globe.

Living in the Age of Airplanes is narrated by Harrison Ford, produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), and features an original score by Academy Award® winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic).

The BC Aviation Museum Society is dedicated to preserving aircraft and aviation artifacts. We collect, restore and display aircraft and artifacts related to the history of aviation in Canada, with emphasis on British Columbia.
