My apologies, I don’t speak any French. But I hope this might be of interest in any language:

The cockpit of this Catalina flying boat, built 1943 in Canada, has some modern components – it’s still flying, and one of the stars of the British air show scene.

G-PBYA is owned by the Catalina Society, and based at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire, where the virtual tour was shot.

All controls, instruments, and switches are explained – just hover over an area of interest, and a text will pop up (this doesn’t work on touch devices, unfortunately).

The panoramic view shot at the rear of the aircraft is quite unusual, it’s shot from inside one of the huge perspex blisters. The rear of the aircraft is almost authentic, so this might be a useful reference.

If you can think of an aircraft that might benefit from an interactive panorama, or a virtual tour, please []let me now[/email:7t4t6tm4]!
