Vickers Vimy 

Sandpit has completed the design and delivery of the digital content for the new, permanent Vickers Vimy exhibition at the Adelaide Airport. 

We were entrusted to bring to life the story of the Vimy, a globally significant piece of aviation history.

Articulating the Vimy’s epic story involved reimagining rich archival materials into a contemporary design language. We created an array of digital interactive and video content for the space, spanning the creation of a large scale video projection, using archival film footage shot from the plane in 1919 by the Vimy crew and designing interactive kiosks that integrate archival photography, artefacts and maps.

We were responsible for the cinematography and editing of original video content that documents contemporary sites including the Memorial to Ross Smith in Adelaide, and timelapse footage of the Vimy’s relocation into its new home.

Alongside a sweeping soundscape for the overall exhibition, Sandpit also produced the first ever recording of the song “Our Flying Boys”, a celebration song written by E Ronchetti-Allein and Jack Fewster which can now be heard for the first time in 100 years at the exhibit alongside an interview by the celebrated pilot and mechanic, Wally Shiers.
