Aerial America is an ambitious tv series that captures the glorious America from the aerial view. It features all the states of America and takes the audience deep into their history. The show first premiered on July 10, 2010 on Smithsonian Channel.
Complaining about the traffic on a daily basis, criticizing the deteriorating landscapes and ignoring the increasing degradation of the natural beauty around us have become a part of our daily lives without us even noticing. At some point or the other, we all have wished to simply leave the land filled with commotion and fly to our destination, no matter however small ride it might be. So, what happens when you actually find yourself viewing your own city that you have lived in, from thousands of feet above the ground? Aerial America is a show that converts this imagination into reality.
Aerial America takes the viewers on a flight to America’s most renowned landmarks, busy cityscapes, and quiet lands. It features the world’s one of the most historically rich countries, high from the air and lets the audience know of the beauty that they are missing in their everyday lives and need to preserve. Apart from capturing the states, the show also takes you to some themed journeys such as the ‘best small towns of the country’ and ‘natural wonders’.
While there have been many documentary series featuring different parts of the world, the show’s take to capture everything from the air is quite an uncommon concept in the television industry. After the success of Aerial America, the franchisee also released Aerial Britain that captures Britain from the air.
