It's hard to watch this movie and not be charmed. There's an elegant simplicity to this story about airplane pilots who unexpectedly appear out of the sky, land in a field, and end up becoming lasting friends with the surprised farmer and his family in the process. The music is especially wonderful.

This film brought back many good memories of my high school years in Civil Air Patrol. The Piper Cub/J-3/L-16 was especially evocative, as I learned to fly in that basic, fun craft. We ran across this program on our local PBS station, and had to have it.

Thanks for bringing back memories:
Pottering along above the everyday world;
Storytelling with the old World War II and Korea vets;
Preparing tubs of food for fly-in guests;
Making hard calls on the bombing range;
Directing traffic around a crowded airfield.

You really can't know that world unless you've been there, but this comes close.

Found this a heart-warming tale of adventure in middle America. Combines men in flight and a large family on a dairy farm in Indiana. Friends to whom I've loaned it say it has brought them to tears.A great tale of America; makes one proud.

Barnstorming is a remarkable video full of wonderful characters and beautiful planes. Paul Glenshaw and Bryan Reichardt tell the true story of a group of barnstorming pilots and the people who flocked to fields to see them.

The film traces an accidental friendship that develops between two antique airplane pilots and an eastern Indiana farm family they literally dropped in on one day, back in 1999. The farm family invites the pilots back and they took the family up on the invitation. Their visit is now an eagerly anticipated annual event and party attended by a growing number of townspeople.

It is a wonderful and touching video. I have watched it many times and see a different aspect every time. Great flying and pilot talk set in the Heartland of Indiana. If you haven't had a chance to view it - treat yourself. Flying Boats & SpiesChina Clipper, a Nick Grant Adventure

This story is just riveting! It is a true slice of Americana. The people are real and the story line goes back to the barnstorming days on the 20's and 30's. If you love old airplanes and honest, giving people, you will love this movie!

You will be unprepared for the sore muscles felt in your face the day after watching this documentary film as a direct result of the most continual smiling you will have done in recent memory. This adventure is touching beyond the special bond shared by those associated with aviation, and should be enjoyed by all who watch it. Many will even forget this is a recent film, instead they may actually feel that they have travelled back to a more memorable time reminiscent of their own early life of cherished family values, that included a child's imagination. If you do not have streaming capability( the DVD rarely is in stock) a simple Internet search will allow you to find a disc copy for sale. A film to truly cherish.
