June 22, 2016 - As a brand new feature for our AirVenture attendees, AeroCinema, a new, subscription-on-demand streaming service featuring shows and movies about aviation (think Netflix for aviation enthusiasts), will screen films in the EAA AirVenture Museum’s state of the art, air conditioned SkyScape theater throughout the week of AirVenture 2016.
With more than 400 documentaries, features, and profiles in its library, AeroCinema is dedicated to telling the stories of aviation - past, present, and future.
The documentaries featured during AirVenture 2016 will cover a broad range of aviation topics and historical events. From stories about the airplanes, pilots, and manufacturers that have played important roles in American military history, to feats in modern aviation.
The following films will be featured:

- The Nazi’s Secret Factory is the story of espionage, torture, and intrigue in the final days of World War II.
- Tuesday, July 26 – The XF-103

- In 1969, The London to Sydney Air Race brought together pilots from around the world for an air marathon between the two cities.

- Thursday, July 28 – The 1-400

Soaring at more than 40,000 feet in a secret German aircraft, the Junkers Ju86-R, he was able to attack British targets at will.
