The power of flight is one of nature’s greatest achievements. From its humble beginnings, over one hundred billion creatures soar through the sky today, from tiny, nectar-drinking hummingbirds to armored airborne beetles, bizarre winged lizards and sonar-guided bats hunting in the dead of night.
In Conquest of the Skies 3D, travel through time to unravel the astonishing, 300-million-year story of the flying animals. Who were the first flying creatures, where did they evolve, and how did they adapt into the huge variety of aeronauts that fill our skies today? The film uses cutting-edge CGI, the very latest in high-resolution filming techniques, and pioneering scientific analysis to reveal the hidden mechanics behind the gravity-defying skills of animals.
