A stunning trailer has just been released for a documentary that will be coming out next year, entitled “Aviation: The Invisible Highway.”
What an absolutely gorgeous video that captures what I think has most of us obsessed with this hobby. As much as I write about caviar and Krug and good service and comfortable duvets and rubber ducks, at the end of the day that’s not what I truly love about flying.
It’s the miracle of flight that still has me hooked. Even millions of miles later, I still gaze at airplanes and airports the same way as I did the first day they caught my attention.
I still can’t help but have a huge smile on my face every time I enter the arrivals hall of a foreign airport and see so many people waiting for loved ones with signs, balloons, groups of people, etc., even if there’s no one waiting for me.
I can’t help but be in awe every time I look at the departures board at a major airport and see that there are literally flights to five continents departing within hours of one another.
The world is beautiful, amazing, and terrifying all at once, and really it’s airplanes that bridge the gap. And they don’t just bridge places, but more importantly people and stories.
Can’t wait for the documentary, looks like the ultimate #AvGeek porn!
