Three panoramas of the outside, and eight of the inside, from bomb aimer to rear gunner, should provide a lot of detail to anyone building a Lancaster! There are only three Lancasters in the world that are not stationary in a museum: The BBMF Mk.III PA474, the Canadian Mk.X FM213, and NX611 "Just Jane". This virtual tour has been created for the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby. Almost all details are labelled, many explained, just move the mouse cursor over an item of interest. Click here open the panorama, and switch to full screen mode! If you are interested in future aircraft panoramas, please sign up to our mailing list! A bit more about the virtual tour can be found here. Next to come are a Tiger Moth. If you can think of an aircraft that could benefit from such work, please let us know!
The de Havilland Vampire WZ507 is well known to the British air show scene, a rare cold war jet fighter preserved and flown by the Vampire Preservation Group, based at North Weald airfield. This interactive cockpit panorama has been created for the Vampire website - it's enormously expensive to keep such an old warbird flying, and the panorama is meant to attract visitors to the Vampire website, join their Supporter's Club, or even become shareholders. Click on the photo below to open the panorama, and switch to full screen mode! If you are interested in future aircraft panoramas, please sign up to my mailing list! A bit more about the panorama can be found here. Next to come are a Tiger Moth, and complete virtual tour of one of the iconic WWII bombers. If you can think of an aircraft that could benefit from such work, please let me know!
Finished an interactive panorama for a client, Aero Legends, based at the WWII airfield Lashenden/Headcorn in Kent; This Spitfire, TD314, built 1944 at Castle Bromwich, has been recently restored to the highest standard, the only not authentic part in the cockpit is the radio, and that's discreetly placed in the original map box. The panorama is best viewed on a device with a mouse cursor - if you hover the cursor over an item of interest, a description and, for items out of view, a still photo will pop up. You can fire up the Merlin engine - just press the Engine Start button!

The Duxford-based Consolidated PBY5A Catalina has a slightly more modern cockpit than the a wartime Catalina, but it might still be of interest: An interactive panorama of the Catalina cockpit - lables for all the switches and instruments will follow. This is part of a complete virtual tour of all five sections of the Catalina fuselage, and there will be another panorama, overlooking the Catalina, taken from one of the huge blisters. Also online is an interactive panorama of an English Electric Lightning cockpit, and a virtual tour of an English Electric Lightning Canberra - cockpit, bomb aimer station, and navigator station. Next to come is a very detailed panorama of a Spitfire Mk IX cockpit.
