Wargaming Helps Bring the Last Surviving Dornier Do 17 to Life

Wargaming passed along word that the Royal Air Force Museum has officially unveiled the German Dornier Do 17 and the associated Wargaming.net Interpretation Zone at its site in Cosford, Shropshire (England). The new interpretation zone allows guests to view an augmented reality Dornier flying above the museum through a newly developed app called ‘Apparition’ and offers the chance for users to capture photos of their local virtual Dornier and have them featured in the next Wargaming exhibition hall opening at the RAF Museum in London in 2014.

In June 2013 the only known German Dornier Do 17 bomber was recovered from the waters of the Goodwin Sands, three miles off the coast of England. Over 400 models were employed by the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain. Now it is the focus of a vast exhibition at the Royal Air Force Museum.
