Angelina Wows Viewers as She Expertly Pilots a Plane Over Namibia

Angelina Wows Viewers as She Expertly Pilots a Plane Over Namibia

Just a nice article by People magazine about Angelina and her part in The Queen’s Green Planet and how people have reacted to Angie being a talented pilot 🙂

Angelina Jolie is going to great heights for her latest conservationist project.

The actress, environmentalist and all-around Renaissance woman, 42, impressed fans around the world this week when she was filmed nonchalantly piloting and landing a small plane over the Namibian desert in the ITV special The Queen’s Green Planet.

For the new documentary, which she appeared in with Queen Elizabeth and Sir David Attenborough, Jolie spent time in the African nation highlighting forest conservation.

“For us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message,” the Oscar winner explained in the documentary, which aired April 16.

In addition to the documentary’s positive message, fans were blown away by Jolie’s piloting skills.

“What even is this show?! Attenborough, The Queen, and now Angelina Jolie just casually flying a plane. Is there anything she can’t do?” one fan tweeted.

“Angelina Jolie is flying a plane over the desert nonchalantly. Is there anything this woman can’t do??” another echoed.

“Congratulations to Angelina Jolie being able to fly plane without even looking were she is going!!! Literally UNBELIVABLE!!!” U.K. television presenter Stephen Mulhern wrote.

Jolie got her pilot’s license in December 2004, saying that her son Maddox inspired her, PEOPLE reported at the time. “If I could actually fly a plane by the time he’s 4, I’ll be like Superman to him.”

Angelina Jolie has nothing but good words to say about the Queen
The actress appears in a documentary which features the Queen and Sir David Attenborough

Angelina Jolie has described the Queen as a “lovely lady who really cares about people around the world” in upcoming documentary The Queen’s Green Planet about Her Majesty’s plans to protect the environment. The programme also stars David Attenborough.

Jolie – who goes to Namibia with her six children in the documentary to highlight the importance of forest conservation in Africa – explained what she told her young family when they asked why the Queen believes strongly in preserving nature.

“What it comes down to it you say to the kids, ‘You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a queen and all that,'” says Jolie.

“But you try to say, ‘You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures.

Angelina to appear in documentary “The Queen’s Green Planet”

Angelina will star in a new documentary alongside English Queen and Sir David Attenborough. It will air on April 16 at 9pm on ITV. Hopefully it will be available in other mediums soon!

The Queen will star in a new documentary which explores her plans to create a global network of forest conservation initiatives across all 53 Commonwealth countries.

The initiative marks the Queen’s lifetime service to the Commonwealth and her wish to preserve natural habitats for future generations.

Here’s what you need to know ahead of the documentary airing:

What time is it on TV?

The Queen’s Green Planet airs on Monday 16 April at 9pm on ITV.

Who will appear?

The Queen herself, offering a rare look at her life, aged 91, as she explores the grounds of Buckingham Palace with Sir David Attenborough.

Angelina Jolie, and Princes William and Harry, will also put in an appearance as they support the Queen’s initiative.

What should I expect?

The documentary follows the Queen and her ambitious legacy project to create a global network of protected forests.

It features a lengthy conversation between the Queen and Sir David Attenborough as they wandered around the gardens of Buckingham Palace in summer last year, where they discussed a range of subjects including climate change to conkers and birthday gifts. There was even a little joke about Donald Trump.

Prince Harry will be seen planting trees in the Caribbean and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest.

Angelina Jolie and Her Children Are Working a Special Conservation Project

Angelina Jolie and Her Children Are Working a Special Conservation Project

Remember when the Harper’s Bazaar issue with Angelina on the cover from when she visited Namibia last summer? This is a bit of a follow up article by Harper’s Bazaar and it gives us more details on the photoshoot, projects Angelina and her kids are working on as well as more information on the upcoming documentary The Queen’s Green Planet.

Angelina Jolie and Her Children Are Working with Queen Elizabeth on a Special Conservation Project

Jolie opens up about working alongside her children for the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.

They may be from two very different worlds, but it’s a shared passion for conservation that has Angelina Jolie joining forces with the Queen to help save one of the world’s most important natural habitats—forests.

One of Her Majesty’s most ambitious projects to date, the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) is a unique initiative to build a vast network of forest conservation projects around the world. It’s also the reason Jolie secretly travelled to Namibia last summer with her six children to open a plant nursery to provide local saplings to replace dying trees in the Namib desert.

“The [project] means so much and will mean so much to so many people,” Jolie says in new documentary The Queen’s Green Planet. “So, for us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message.”

So far, 37 Commonwealth nations, including Australia, Canada, Jamaica and the U.K., have signed up to the program, which aims to save indigenous forests spanning across 53 Commonwealth countries for future generations.

Jolie is an active campaigner on Namibia’s conservation scene and has been involved in numerous projects there since she first visited in 2003, so it was an instant “yes” when she was approached by the Namibian government on behalf of the Queen to help the initiative.
