The Museum had created a powerful exhibition paying homage to the stories of the people who were onboard that fateful flight on 6 February 1958. But to give visitors a deeper understanding of what happened, we added an interactive element to the displays.
Rather than replicating the stories already depicted, we designed a touchscreen interface containing realistic-looking documents, photos and videos relating to the investigation – allowing users to piece together the story for themselves. We combined this with a series of automated animations to draw people in, as well as a timeline using the aircraft radio transcript to help tell one of the most powerful stories in sporting history.
