The Magic of Flight
Teacher’s Choice @ IMAX: Choose 10am or 11:10am, Monday – Friday
Experience the thrill of a Blue Angels air show while learning about the science and history of flight. Featuring cutting-edge aerial photography, this is the story of human potential and the importance of training and performance. In The Magic of Flight, we are inspired by a bird’s innate ease to take flight and review early flight attempts, as well as the ultimate successful flight of the Wright Brothers in 1903. The variety and versatility of today’s flying machines are also displayed throughout the film. We learn how the Harrier jet mimics a bird’s landing and take-off. The jet can be delicately maneuvered at slow speeds, yet capable of moving over 500 mph. We also witness 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.
