Earthflight is a totally immersive experience, taking the audience on an incredible flight across the world on the wings of birds. Revolutionary aerial techniques and state-of-the-art 3D cameras deliver the reality of flying right alongside birds as we join a variety of different species on their seasonal journeys. As we fly with the birds on their migrations, we discover the fascinating science of flight: how they manoeuvre simultaneously in flocks a million strong; manage immense journeys; navigate across whole continents and collaborate with other animals to find food. It’s a thrilling experience as the audience is plunged into the centre of the flock. Earthflight soars into the heart of the action as never before.
