The premier film for the Theatre of the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution. A brief summary of the history of flight, from 19th century balloons through 21st century space probes, while simultaneously showing off the new Imax film medium. The evolution of flying technology is portrayed in parallel with the story of the westward exploration of America and the rural-to-cosmopolitan transformation of American society. Written by

I saw this film when it first debuted in 1976 at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. More than 3 decades later, it's still playing there. That's a testament to how good this short film really is.
I was 10 years old when this came out, and if you have kids, take them to see this. It will leave them breathless. The Imax format is so big, the movie screen is over 5 stories tall! Watching the landing gear of a 747 get sucked up into the belly on takeoff is something that will leave you saying "wow!" If you're an aviation enthusiast, this is a must-see.
