    • Synopsis
    • Shinobu Yaguchi brought feelings of laughter, tears, and exhilaration to audiences in Japan with his films about boys' synchronized swimming and girls' high school big band jazz. The theme of his latest film is "airplanes" of all things! Usually, films featuring airplanes tend to be panic films or focus on just the pilots and flight attendants. But Yaguchi's intent was to create a more realistic, completely new film that oversees all corners of the aviation industry. He interviewed the various sections to create his story, to understand just how many people are involved in making a single airplane take off and land.
      The setting of the film is an airport and airplanes. A great variety of "aviation professionals" such as pilots, flight attendants, the ground crew, mechanics, dispatchers, controllers, and the bird patrol crew all support a single flight. They have only one mission: to secure the safety of the passengers!
      Today was supposed to be any other day on the job, departing on schedule and heading safely to Honolulu, but…
      The experience of seeing this film is fun and exciting, just like actually riding on a jumbo jet. A wonderfully entertaining film about the aviation industry chock-full of Shinobu Yaguchi's love and fascination towards airplanes has been born!
