Explore the Modern Marvels of Technology on the High Seas! Aircraft Carrier is a large-format, immersive film packed with adrenaline-laced visuals and human stories that pay stirring tribute to the crucial role modern aircraft carriers play in maintaining the freedom of the seas, and keeping the sea lanes open for commerce.
With unprecedented logistical assistance and access by the United States Navy, Aircraft Carrier places audiences aboard a Nimitz-class carrier, during the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) maritime exercises. RIMPAC provides a striking visual context for the size and scale of the maritime drill – with over 22 nations and 55 ships participating – along with 92 fixed wing aircraft and helicopters on the carrier itself, a veritable city at sea (population nearly 5,000 crew). Aircraft Carrier brings audiences not only aboard the carrier, but also the Navy’s newest submarines and cockpit of the Navy’s next generation aircraft, the F-35. Viewers get a unique perspective on these new stealth fighters, observing their advanced technology systems and experiencing the pilot’s perspective as it catapults off from the carrier into flight.
