Product Description

Shot in stunning High Definition and narrated by Martin Sheen, On Great White Wings tells the compelling story of the Wright Brothers. This award-winning documentary made film history by flying a replica 1905 Wright Flyer – the first time since the original model was flown by the Wright Brothers.

SHOT in the style of a feature film rather than a traditional documentary, audiences will be immersed in the dramatic and emotional story of the brothers’ quest for flight. Combining historical re-enactments, live-action footage of Wright replica airplanes, and state-of-the-art digital effects – the documentary cinematically brings history to life and showcases how two brothers, working alone, transformed the twentieth century with the invention of the airplane. On Great White Wings will move, educate, and inspire audiences for years to come.
