Over the weekend, I discovered the on demand Smithsonian Channel on my (Time Warner) cable box. As I looked through the show options, I was intrigued when I saw a listing for an aerial show all about Hawaii. So, without haste, I watched it, of course.
As you might imagine, the video scenery is gorgeous. I enjoyed being able to watch this aerial view which added a new perspective to places I’ve visited only from the ground. The video includes all the six major islands.
If you also have the Smithsonian On Demand channel, I would encourage you to watch it. The show is called Aerial America: Hawaii. In case, you don’t have the Smithsonian Channel, I’ve embedded the entire Hawaii episode below. (Email subscribers, please click here to access the video.)
Please note that the entire episode is just under 47 minutes-long. So you may want to watch the video when you can set aside that time.
For the most part, the commentary is accurate and I certainly learned some new things about these islands that I love so much.. There were a few pronunciations, names and bits of history that weren’t exactly accurate, but I was able to overlook that because of the high quality video. 🙂
Whether you’re a seasoned Hawaii aficionado or you’re preparing for your first trip to these islands, I think you’ll enjoy these birds eye views of Hawaii. After you’ve watched the video, I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts of it. Please share your comments.
