Interactive Experience in Military Aircraft and Aviation

Strap yourself in for a one-of-a-kind journey through the most pivotal - and fascinating - period of WWII aviation history. One minute you're examining the machine guns of a Curtiss P-40 Tomahawk on the gravel runway of Kunming Airfield in Southwest China, the next you're at the controls of an RAF Hurricane battling Luftwaffe Messerschmitts in the flak-filled skies over the River Thames.

Experience allied and enemy air combat tactics via state-of-the-art animation and three adrenaline-fueled flight simulator missions. Inspect more than 720 planes from 26 nations including Japan, Germany, Britain and America. Analyze strategic war reports from Western and Eastern Europe, the Pacific and more - all via interactive 3-D graphics, realistic sound effects, archival photos and historic film footage, voice-over narration and more.

It's the ultimate interactive exploration of World War II aviation from the people who brought the adventure of military history to extraordinary new heights: WINGS.

Air Combat View air battles as never before see. Full-motion animated movies put you in the cockpits of RAF Spitfires, Japanese Kates, American P-40s and more.

Air Bases Conduct your own 360-degree inspections of strategic airfields in Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Zoom and pan your way through multiple locations and go inside control towers and pilot ready-rooms.

Aircraft Examine classic American, German, British, Japanese and Russian planes from every angle. Go on location with full-color, 3-D graphics, detailed sound and extensive background reports.

Theaters of War Historical briefings take you behind the scenes as Japan's surprise attack changes the face of warfare and Hitler's Luftwaffe attempts to rub out the cities of England. Choose from ten more riveting reports containing data maps, archival photos and authentic film footage.
