The Wing | Battle of Britain Memorial Trust
The Wing, a new visitor centre on the white cliffs above Folkestone, is run by The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust and aims to explain for future generations the significance of the air battles in the skies above Britain in the summer of 1940.
The building, constructed in the shape of a Spitfire wing, houses 'The Scramble Experience'; an immersive audio visual exhibition which includes a 9 projector dramatic reconstruction, several large multi screen interactive exhibits and a number of animations, documentaries and audio points. Elbow were responsible for all 28 digital exhibits and AVs, working closely with the client team to ensure a cohesive immersive environment that is inspiring and exciting for audiences of all ages.
Most recently we were invited back to The Wing to work on a new cockpit simulator experience which was completed in Summer 2017. The full-size replica of a Hurricane cockpit allows visitors to sit in the aircraft, ‘fly’ it to the right height using a realistic control column and then try to find camouflaged enemy aircraft.
