Audience Member This film probably looks spectacular in IMAX. Unfortunately, its only official home media release has been on VHS, and it doesn't look particularly great on VHS. Still, even with the low image quality, I could tell that the camerawork was stunning. This film has minimal narration, and is mostly just aerial footage. It starts with a (somewhat cheesy) re-enactment of one of the first hot air balloon flights, but it quickly moves on to showing many other aircraft in flight. It's not difficult to imagine why this film may have helped to increase the popularity of the IMAX format.
