Unfortunately, even with a widescreen TV, it's not the same experience as being in an IMAX theater with a 60' screen -- you don't get the feeling of being in the pilot's seat, like you do at IMAX. But a great experience nonetheless.
The other great thing from this IMAX film is the pilots truly convey their joy of flying. Blue Angels, stunt pilots & pilots taking off / landing on aircraft carriers; you can feel their passion for what they do.
It's clear that tMoF is a much older movie and this shows in all apsects of its production compared to the newer documentaries brought out by the same company on the IMAX format.
This doesn't mean tMoF isn't worth a watch,especially for fans of the genre,but I think it's average at best and would only recommend this title if the price reflects this.
The IMAX cameras are mounted on different angles on the plane, so you get a close up view of what it is like to be in the cockpit with the Blue Angels or land on an aircraft carrier at sea.
There is also interesting background on the origination of flight (Wright Brothers).
This documentary was filmed in IMAX and it looks great on Blu-Ray and a good High Definition TV.
I liked the documentary of the making of the film as well; the director and crew went to great efforts to make a quality film.

As a former Naval Aviator I really enjoyed this. Most of us performed the same maneuvers in formation, but several thousand feet higher.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
I purchased this as a gift for my daughter. She loves the Blue Angels. This video is great. I don't mind watching it either because Tom Selleck narrates.Published 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
