My Opinion:
I love all things aeronautics. Airplanes, Helicopters, Gliders, Parachutes, if it's airborne, I'm interested. I have no idea where I get it from either.
This book is amazing for an airplane lover like me. It has everything, and I mean everything, from the start of air-time to now. The photos accompanying the paragraphs about where the plane came from, really give you a sense of looking back in time. I had a couple, "Whoa!", moments when reading.
I think people of all ages will enjoy this. Of course you do need a slight fascination for the obvious, airplanes, but it pulls in the smallest adorer.

4/5


Recommend? To airplane fans, yes.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
