A Virtual Tour of the Lightning F53 Cockpit

March, 2015

In October last year the Museum opened an interactive exhibition enabling visitors to take a virtual tour around the three Canberra B2 cockpits. The Museum has now opened a similar exhibition in the Meryl Hansed Memorial Hall that enables visitors to navigate around the Lightning F53 cockpit without entering the aircraft. The visitor, by using a mouse, is able to zoom onto cockpit instruments which, when selected, are automatically labelled on the exhibition’s monitor screen. The exhibition’s software was produced by photographer Harald Joergens.
