Not everyone will choose to see both the WWI Knights of the Sky Peter Jackson exhibit and the Dangerous Skies WWII exhibit. It is a pricey duo, unless you are a senior or student and you get a discount. They are both fascinating.
The Knights of the Sky has 16 different aircraft along with super back up documentation and ephemera. The Weta Workshop technicians make the people look alive, incredible technology! I felt the highlight was the scene created around the Red Baron's plane crash. It took us almost two hours for this exhibition.
The Dangerous skies is not as large or busy as the 1st setting, but it does have 13 of the best flying machines from the 2nd world war. The European Theater takes up 95% of the display and the most mind blowing exhibit is the eight minute film on the Stalingrad Experience. You are In It. two wall photography with scary close action. Really a strong piece. After that is a small Pacific Theater memorabilia set, followed by the MK.14 Spitfire.
Outside there is a DC3 and a front loading royal mail merchant courier, and an unexploded bomb. What a great full half day experience.
