New at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford this August, visitors will be able to experience all the thrills and exhilaration of powered flight by entering the Museum’s newest exhibit – its 4D Experience.

This purpose built theatre combines cutting-edge stereoscopic 3D computer animation with the added fourth dimension of dynamic seating and special environmental effects including seat movements, water spray, leg ticklers and smoke effects.

Visitors will be transported directly into each story as they become a member on board the Apollo 11 space shuttle mission to the moon with a whimsical twist involving three teenage flies; or a World War One fighter pilot taking part in a thrilling mid-air combat in a tri plane aircraft.

Located in the Test Flight Hangar, visitors can now experience the two 4D rides available ‘Fly me to the Moon’ and ‘Dog Fight - Red Baron’ as part of their visit. Each stunning film lasts approximately seven minutes, and is sure to entertain visitors of all ages.
