Virtual technology is evoking the pain, suffering and fear of World War II by bringing the stories of the Bombing of Darwin to life at the Royal Flying Doctors Museum at the Stokes Hill Wharf.

When Darwin Harbour was bombed in 1942, the wholesale destruction wreaked havoc on the city and its people. The harrowing stories and experiences of residents and those who fought to protect the city are being re-lived using virtual reality goggles and holograms.

A life size hologram of Rear Admiral Etheridge Grant, the late Commanding Officer of the USS William B Preston, recalls his own encounter during the bombing.
