Aircraft Simulator

About This Project

This interactive exhibit space is a simulated airplane ride aboard an early 20th Century Lockheed Vega. It represents the Braniff Airlines section of this exhibit at the Oklahoma History Center.

Visitors come aboard for a sensory experience flying from Oklahoma City to Tulsa in the 1930s. The window views change to show take off, flybys of OKC and Tulsa and landing. A "live" pilot narrates the journey on a video screen at the front of the airframe.
