The Magic of Flight (2004) on Blu-ray Disc

The Magic of Flight Documentary on Blu-ray
The Magic of Flight is a 39-minute Imax film, which takes you soaring starting with the first flight flown by the Wright Brothers (1903) and with the Blue Angels and their maneuvers. It is a tribute of sorts to aircraft and to people who fly and is narrated by Tom Selleck.

The Magic of Flight was seventh on the list of the best Imax Blu-ray movies in 2008. Definitely a great choice if you love airplanes and flying. It is an older movie that was shot in 1996 and so is of a different quality than those being made with today's Blu-ray technology.

On this page, you will find some information about this Imax documentary film including short reviews, links to excellent and more detailed  reviews and the trailer. 

Imax documentary movies take us to new worlds. Read on to take flight with The Magic of Flight.


The Magic of Flight has been called, "Astonishing and gut jolting."

DVD Talk says that the aerial film included in this program is both stunning and exciting. "Having a nosecone's view of vertigo inducing quick rolls and drops is really an amazing experience." says that this film is impressive particularly its audio track that reproduces everything from the thunder of jet engines to the detail of a near-silent flock of birds.

As always, ordinary viewers like you and I are disappointed with the length of this Imax film, which is just 37 minutes long. However, they are not disappointed with the footage, which is amazing in high definition. Reportedly, it cost somewhere in the vicinity of a million dollars a minute to make this IMAX footage. Pretty impressive. See for yourself in the official trailer:
