IMAX 3-D 'Legends Of Flight' Set For June Premier

First Ever IMAX 3-D Aviation Film

"Legends of Flight," the first ever 15/70 3D IMAX aviation film, is set for to premier June 8th at the National Air and Space Museum's IMAX theater west of Washington, DC.

Legends of Flight explores the relationships between natural flight, advanced design, innovative assembly techniques and operational technologies that have brought us to the dawn of a new era in aircraft design. Profiling milestone aircraft having influenced later aeronautical design and performance criteria, Legends of Flight is the latest Giant Screen feature film from acclaimed Canadian filmmaker, Stephen Low. 

The film brings a new perspective to aviation through the use of advanced 3D technology and the personality of The Boeing Company's chief pilot for the 787 Dreamliner, Capt. Mike Carriker. Carriker serves as the audience's guide, interpreter, flight instructor and amiable companion. Moviegoers will soar engineless through breathtaking mountain passes, feel the wind in their hair barnstorming in a Stearman bi-plane, and will experience sheer flight exhilaration as a Harrier Jump Jet leaps into the sky at the pilot's command and then rockets to tactical speed.

The premier event will begin with a brunch and news conference at 1000 EDT at Reagan National Airport's (DCA) Historic Terminal A Lobby. The film will actually premier at 1300 at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum (NASM) IMAX Theater in Chantilly, VA.

Transportation from DCA to the NASM for the film premiere will be provided. Those who are unable to attend the press conference are welcome to attend the premiere. Return transportation to DCA will be provided and a post-screening reception will be held in the Terminal A Mezzanine Museum.
