As part of its continuing effort to restore and preserve historic military equipment, Wargaming has announced its partnership with the Royal Air Force Museum to bring the Dornier DO17 aircraft to the RAF Museum in London upon its restoration. The historic plane is expected to be fully restored sometime in 2015.
To celebrate the opening of the Wargaming.net Interpretation Zone on February 28, 2014 Wargaming and the RAF Museum launched a mobile application, Apparition, using augmented reality to view a virtual version of the aircraft flying over the museum. Users were encouraged to submit photos of the hundreds of virtual Do17’s placed in various locations around the world, and the top 15 photos from Australia, UK, Ukraine, Philippines, Mexico and the USA were chosen to be on display at the exhibit.
