THE STORY SPACE
Following a £1M refurbishment, this thrilling new family-friendly experience captivates audiences by bringing to life the high flying, adrenaline-fueled skill of Fleet Air Arm flyers.
THE STORY NARRATIVE
The aircraft carrier experience blends the best of digital technology with the scale of a carrier flight deck, allowing visitors to explore 100 years of naval aircraft types; from the pioneer years of the First World War, all the way to the modern HMS Queen Elizabeth class carriers of today.
THE STORY ENGINEERING
With dynamic projections spanning up to 100 feet long, visitors will become immersed in the sights and sounds of a carrier at sea, with aircraft flying overhead. Dunning’s pioneering landing on a moving ship over 100 years ago can also be watched in epic cinematic detail.
The Carrier Experience concludes with a focus on the Queen Elizabeth Class Carriers and their role of vital importance to the Royal Navy today, including its aircraft. At the centre of the UK’s Carrier Strike Group is its incredible air superiority, the F35 Lightning II. Thanks to support from Lockheed Martin, the museum has been able to develop its finale exhibition to create a crescendo audio-visual experience fitting of a technologically advanced and fifth generation fighter jet.
The experience features projection mapping technology, overlaid on an impressive revolving F-35B model, creating a stunning and unique display detailing the role of the F-35B and its capabilities, leaving visitors in awe.
