Macross Frontier Movie: The Wings of Goodbye (劇場版 マクロスF 恋離飛翼～サヨナラノツバサ～ Gekijō-ban Makurosu Furontia ~Sayonara no Tsubasa~?) is a theatrical adaptation of Macross Frontier, and the direct sequel to Macross Frontier Movie: The False Songstress. It was released on February 26, 2011 by Klock Worx.
In 2059, a long-range space colony, the Macross Frontier, continues to make its perilous voyage to the center of the galaxy.
A young stunt pilot named Alto Saotome's life is forever changed after he joins SMS, a private military company aboard the Frontier. By some twist of fate, Saotome begins to fall for the galactic idol, Sheryl Nome, along with his friend and rising pop star, Ranka Lee. In the voices of the two girls are hidden secrets which threaten the ship.
The official website of the Macross Frontier anime series confirmed that there would be two theatrical Macross Frontier films. While the first film was a re-edit of the story of the television series with new footage, the second film, titled Macross Frontier the Movie: The Wings of Goodbye (マクロスF 恋離飛翼～サヨナラノツバサ～ Macross Frontier Gekijō-ban ~Sayonara no Tsubasa~?), which was based also on the Macross Frontier TV series, acted as a sequel to the 2009 film, including a new story and new music. In the Macross Frontier Girasama Festival, the movie's release date was confirmed to be on February 26, 2011. The film is a rearrangement of aspects of the original TV series, having little to do with the original story.
Blu-ray and DVD editions of the movie were released by Bandai Namco Games on October 20, 2011. The Blu-ray version is still a Hybrid Pack, the same as the first movie released in Blu-ray. A PS3 game titled Macross Last Frontier is included in the Hybrid Pack, and it can be played when the disc is in the PlayStation 3. A Blu-ray re-release took place in 2016.
