National Geographic Studios’ Harrison Ford-narrated aviation documentary Living in the Age of Airplanes  (pictured) will open in U.S. theaters on April 10.

The film recounts the history of aviation and the impact the advent of air travel has had on the world. It was directed by Brian J. Terwilliger and shot in 95 locations and 18 countries.

Ahead of the theatrical run on IMAX giant screens, 15/70mm dome screens and digital cinemas in 20 U.S. cities, the film will premiere on April 8 at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

Titanic composer James Horner worked on the original score and Andrew Waruszewski served as cinematographer on the project.

“Since we were all born into a world with airplanes, it’s hard to imagine that jet travel itself is only 60 years old, just a tick on the timeline of human history,” said Terwilliger in a statement. “With this film, we want to reignite people’s wonder for one of the most extraordinary aspects of the modern world.”

Ford’s involvement in the project was announced in December. Two weeks ago, the actor and pilot made headlines when he crash landed a single-engine World War II-era plane on a California golf course. His injuries were not life threatening, according to his reps.
