DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Air Force Museum Foundation plans to open a new interactive augmented reality exhibit titled “D-Day: Freedom from Above.”

The exhibit will open at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 13 in the second building of the National Museum of the Air Force.

The U.S. premiere of the exhibit is made possible in association with the French Airborne Museum of Sainte-Mere-Eglise in Normandy.

The 3,500 square foot exhibit will focus on the D-Day missions of the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions in the first French town to be liberated on June 6, 1944, Sainte-Mere-Eglise.

Through the use of tablets that are part of Histovery’s proprietary HistoPad Augmented Visit solution, museum visitors will experience the reality of the D-Day airborne mission in a unique, up-close way.

The HistoPad experience will allow visitors to interact with a series of 3D virtual relics and artifacts, see the inside of aircrafts, virtually operate and manipulate full 360-degree views of equipment, compare scenes today to how they appeared in 1944, view unpublished photographs and extracts of archival films, and much more.
