A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to Flight.
Understanding precision approaches and the ILS glide path
Combining interactive models, a realtime flight simulator and post-flight data driven analysis to create a memorable learning experience.
Immersive flight simulation with photorealistic 3D tiles
Enhancing an existing flight simulator with seamless meshes and high-resolution textures of the real-world, to create a compelling flying experience.
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.
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.
NanoVDB clouds in Unreal 5
Rendering realistic volumetric data in a realtime environment can be challenging. A plugin developed by Eidos-Montréal aims to make it easier with UE5.
Head in the clouds
Creating a volumetric cloud visualisation using realtime fluid simulation tool EmberGen.
Airports around the world
View the location of more than 7,000 airports spanning the globe.
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.
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.
