As a unique part of the AOPA Frederick Homecoming Fly-In, the Friday night Barnstormers Party on June 5 will feature a special screening of the new film Living in the Age of Airplanes. Filmmaker Brian J. Terwilliger, maker of the aviation classic film One Six Right, will be on hand to introduce the film and engage fly-in attendees in discussion.
Living in the Age of Airplanes weaves together the profound ways that aviation has transformed our lives and takes audiences on an epic journey through 18 countries and across all seven continents as it presents a unique perspective on how the airplane has changed the world. It is narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford and features an original score by Academy Award-winning composer and pilot James Horner (Avatar, Titanic).
National Geographic Studios is the distributor of the film. It was released to great acclaim in April and is currently showing in IMAX and select theaters nationwide. The Frederick screening gives fly-in attendees a unique and intimate viewing of this remarkable film, which showcases aviation through extraordinary photography, in-depth story-telling, and a beautiful score.
The film begins at 7:30 p.m. after a barbecue dinner. Make sure you don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event and RSVP today! If you are planning to fly in for the event, be sure to watch the fly-in procedures from the Air Safety Institute and download the pilot information packet.
