As part of the airline brand’s centenary celebrations, BA has opened an exhibition on the future of flight called BA 2119.

The show, which is free to visit, runs until 26 August at the Saatchi Gallery in London and features an array of ideas on what flying in the future may look like.

The exhibition, realised in collaboration with students from the Royal College of Art, includes a one-of-a kind, full motion, virtual reality experience, Fly. 

Future flyers: How BA and RCA students brought the future to life

Built by award winning VR creators and an Oscar-winning practical effects team, Fly enables visitors to become a time-travelling pilot, from the earliest imaginings of Leonard da Vinci and his ornithopter, to the Wright Brothers’ success on Kitty Hawk, to that first inaugural passenger flight to Paris. 

Users will experience Concorde, the brand new A350 and the imagined flight of future.
