The Magic of Flight

Streaming video - 1996

THE MAGIC OF FLIGHT brings the thrill of flight and jet aircraft technology to the big screen with a film that balances the excitement of a Blue Angels air show with the science and history of flight. The film begins by examining how birds fly and reviews the success of the Wright Brothers’ first flight in 1903. Steering from earlier flight ventures to modern aviation, audiences are introduced to high-performance jets. The variety and versatility of today’s flying machines are displayed thr...ough-out the film. In addition, we see naval aviators, with the ability to fly up to 1,300 mph, precisely land on an aircraft carrier, the most difficult maneuver in all of aviation. More than a story of machines, THE MAGIC OF FLIGHT is the story of human potential and the importance of training and performance.
