Jutland 1916

The Battle of Jutland was significant for the Royal Naval Air Service in that it was the first time an aircraft was used in a sea battle to assist the fleet.  The Short 184 aircraft that took part in the battle has a long and interesting history. It survived World War I intact but was then badly damaged in the bombing of London during World War II.  The cockpit and part of the fuselage are on display at Fleet Air Arm Museum and provide a dynamic central feature of our World War I exhibition.  Using projection and lighting onto and around the airframe, the artefact is reinvigorated giving it energy, movement and life.
