RAF Hercules Transport Aircraft Demonstration Unit

We were commissioned by the Royal Air Force to build this representation of a Hercules C130 to serve as an exhibition unit to give the RAF a base for recruitment at shows. It featured a hydraulic slide out pod to one side which contained a representation of an AWACS early warning aircraft layout with the desks and screens fitted and linked to computers.

At the front of the aircraft trailer was a mock up of the cockpit of the C130J with screens and fly by wire controls. There was an audio system throughout with several different areas of sound and at the rear was a large projected image of skydivers falling out of the ramp. On the nearside inside was a row of authentic parachute webbing seats.
