America's Hangar

My dad is a general aviation pilot.  It’s one of his hobbies and he loves it.  He used to own a plane, but had to sell it when he moved several years ago.  I went up with him in it just one time.  It was a very humid day and we weren’t getting anywhere near the lift we should have, so that was an interesting flight.  Everything ended up just fine and it was even fun, but flying in small planes was never quite my thing.  Nonetheless, flying is still incredibly fascinating and is one of the true stories of technological advancement and real perseverance.  Now there’s a movie out all about the history of it in America and it’s ready on DVD now.

Starting this March 17th, now available on DVD from Infinity Entertainment Group and Smithsonian Networks comes a story about the history of flight preserved in America.  America’s Hanger is ready to blast off from your television set and shuttle you to a world of science and wonder.  Bring home this fascinating look at aviation today!

America has a long and storied history when it comes to flight.  This is the nation of the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindberg, Amelia Earhart, Chuck Yeager and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.  World War II made it evident that airpower was the next place where dominance was needed and so all the money poured into airplane design created innovations which were undreamed of simple years before.  Then, in the early Sixties, deep in the grip of a Cold War, the moon was dreamt of and innovation was spurred once again to even higher heights, taking us completely out of this world.  Luckily, to record and capture all of this, from 1946 on, the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institute has been holding onto the treasures of our adventures in the sky.

The special features included on this DVD are a 4×3 letterbox format, Dolby Digital Surround Sound and subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired.

This was a fantastic film.  The production value is incredible and the movies that the Smithsonian Institute puts out are some of the most informative shows I have watched in a long time.  This one was especially fascinating simply because of the wealth of artifacts that the National Air and Space Museum has in their 300,000 square foot facility.  There’s the first airplane, the first commercial aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, space suits, journals and anything else that could be remotely connected to flying through the air.  I learned a whole lot and I’m sure you will too.  Not only that, but you’ll enjoy it a whole lot.

Tour America’s Hanger and all its remarkable achievements.

This DVD is available at Amazon.com.
