BA 2119: British Airways' Flight of the Future Exhibition Opens
British Airways' BA 2119: Flight of the Future exhibition in collaboration with the Royal College of Art is now open at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
The exhibition, which is free to enter and runs until August 26, is part of the airline's centenary celebrations and explores the next 100 years of flying.
The exhibition also includes a one-of-a kind, full motion, virtual reality experience, Fly. Built by award winning VR creators and an Oscar-winning practical effects team, Fly enables visitors to become a time-travelling pilot.
The experience takes visitors from the earliest imaginings of Leonard da Vinci and his ornithopter, to the Wright Brothers’ success on Kitty Hawk, to that first inaugural passenger flight to Paris. Users will experience Concorde, the brand new A350 and the imagined flight of future.
Tickets for Fly need to be purchased in advance here www.ba.com/ba2119.
