A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to Aircraft.
Chinook Crew Chick - Breaking barriers and inspiring others
Liz McConaghy chronicles her time in the RAF, what it's like serving in a male dominated industry, and being the longest serving female Chinook crew member.
A peek inside a turbofan engine
Illustrating the complexity and precision engineering hidden within a modern jet engine. A transparent core casing reveals components that direct airflow.
Strictly Come Dancing takes flight with augmented reality
Pushing the limits of live television, Strictly's larger than life graphics take dancing to another level.
Airspace above the South West of the UK
An interactive model showing multiple classifications of controlled airspace above the South West of the United Kingdom.
Arrivals and departures at London Heathrow
A snapshot capturing the flight paths of aircraft taking off from the northern 27R and landing on the southern 27L (known as westerly operations).
Realtime flight simulator
A preview of a custom flight simulator in action. Built with Unreal Engine 5 and based on resources launched at WATS 2022.
Inset airport runway lighting
A close-up look at a high intensity, bi-directional LED inset lighting.
Head in the clouds
Creating a volumetric cloud visualisation using realtime fluid simulation tool EmberGen.
Flight routes and waypoint references visualised
Aircraft navigate the skies along routes of waypoints and beacons. Waypoints indicate a change in direction, speed, or altitude along the desired path.
Innsbruck airport approach
The runway at Innsbruck is at an elevation of 581 metres and the final approach must be made through a narrow valley with terrain on either side.
Airspace above the United Kingdom
Across the world airspace is divided into three dimensional blocks. This view shows airspace blocks over an area of the United Kingdom.
Airflow around an aircraft wingtip
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of airflow at an aircraft's wingtip. Vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
Pressure around an aircraft wing
CFD visualisation to show the pressure distribution around an aircraft wing. The curved shape creates lift by forcing air to move faster over the top of a wing.
Cross section of pressure around a wing
Rendering the volume of air that is affected by an aerofoil surface. Low pressure areas, responsible for creating lift, are shown in blue.
Airflow around an aircraft wing
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of an aircraft wing, with a 3 degree angle of attack. Including a turntable showing a 360° look at airflow around a wing.
