I've never seen (or heard) an Imax feature. This would be the perfect rite. Thanks for posting.

Praise the lord. Flight seems to bring out the best in Horner.

He did an AFI film a few years back called "First in Flight" about the Wright Bros. The trailer featured his score and it sounded like Field of Dreams...and by no means is that a bad thing.

I'd kill for an iTunes release of that.

The Horsemen music is magnificent and well worth the purchase if you don't have it, too.

I'm quite excited for Horner's upcoming projects. Between this, the double concerto, and Fathers and Daughters I think we're in for some great music.

Wow- looking forward to this documentary film and of course it would be great to have the score album out . Previously Horner did the superb THE HORSEMEN COMETH documentary about the famous P-51 mustang which also had a very limited blu ray and cd combo release (which I now come to own due to a generous friend on this board)

Few other composers capture the element of flight as well as Horner (perhaps only Williams comes close), so this can only be a good thing.

Bring on the soundtrack!

Surely masterpieces of flight like The Blue Max, Night Crossing, and heck Soarin' qualify Goldsmith for the club too...

Nut really my cuppa tea, any of those, but yeah -- there have obviously been other composers who have managed this particular 'feeling' very well.

Indeed. Rocketeer, the opening to Star Trek III, the titles of Land Before Time and The Horsemen Cometh are among my favorite cues ever.

Great news.

I wonder if he adapted any of THE HORSEMEN into this score.

I'm not familiar with the Horsemen Cometh that Horner scored. Was there a soundtrack release for this?

There was digitally and it was available on iTunes for a long time. I now can't find it. If you can, its well worth every penny you spend on it. The Horsemen music is a highlight of Horner's career. It contains shades of In Country, The Spiderwick Chronicles, and The Rocketeer and encompasses everything so powerful about Horner's music. This is his romantic and sweeping side at its best.

Here's a YouTube video of a performance the Horseman did to the music. The music begins at 1:37. Obviously the music is obscured by the noise of the planes at times, but it gives you a good idea of what's going on:

Here, too, is the interview Horner did for the Horsemen at the time the piece was debuted. The interview is scored at first with a sub piece he wrote called "The Fourth Horsemen" that contains a serene rendition of the theme that recurs in the main flight demonstration music. Also features tons of session footage and, later, samples of the flight music.

Will you be releasing a soundtrack?
Yes! Look for it around the same time the film is released on DVD and Blu-ray.
