D.1.4) Flight Recorder

Following an in-service event it was desirable to be able to illustrate the occurrence to the management team: to present it in a form "that even a manager could understand" the data from the flight recorder was replayed using a wire-frame model of the aircraft.

The tool and the wire-frame model were generated from scratch overnight. The speed of replay and viewing angle were adjustable and a 'smoke trail' from the wing tip helped the maneuver to be visualised.
