Plane to Save the Oceans, A
1 x 60'
As coral reefs around the world struggle to survive and global fish populations suffer steep declines, an unlikely hero comes to the rescue: a Boeing 747. Stripped and reduced to its bare aluminium wings and fuselage, a Jumbo jet might seem like an unlikely savior for the oceans of the world. But, in twenty meters of water just off the island nation of Bahrain, there’s a 747 that’s a living testament to the restorative power of a well-placed Jumbo jet. This stunning, one-hour film is a world exclusive, inside account of how a 200-ton aviation giant is transformed, first into a winged submarine, and then into a unique platform that can propel environmental healing and underwater conservation. Featuring a dramatic combination of edge-of-your-seat storytelling, big engineering and eye-popping science and natural history, ‘A Plane to Save the Oceans’ is the unique, blue-chip account of an experiment that’s proved so successful, that it’s about to be repeated.
