Lately, dozens of volunteers and staff have been searching for evidence of a ghost aboard the Battleship Wisconsin. Last night, the image below was captured by a terrified security guard. I'm told he's still recovering this morning.

On the evenings of October 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26, you too can join the search. Help us spread the word. Haunted Ship - come if you dare…

Nauticus Adds New 3D Film to Lineup

Nauticus has followed the success of its first 3D movie, Wild Ocean, with a brand new offering, Fighter Pilot 3D: Operation Red Flag. This 48 minute adrenaline-packed giant screen hit was directed by Stephen Low, one of the foremost large format filmmakers, and provides a rare insider’s view into the teamwork and dangers inherent in military flight training.

Described as "the closest audiences will ever get to a ride in the world's greatest fighter jet," the movie follows a young F-15 fighter pilot through Red Flag, the final training phase before pilots are sent into actual combat. Established in 1975, Red Flag is a two-week realistic combat training exercise involving the elite aerial forces from all four branches of the U.S. military, plus their Guard/Reserve components. It is commonly described as being more challenging than actual combat.

Aviation fans should know that the film features 20 F-15E Strike Eagles, representing four American squadrons, considered by many to be the greatest fighter ever built. Fighter Pilot 3D: Operation Red Flag held its world premiere in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center IMAX Theater. The highly acclaimed film is being re-released in stunning digital 3D with the help of PassmoreLab.
Fighter Pilot 3D: Operation Red Flag is included in regular Nauticus admission. For more information, including times, please call (757) 664-1000. For more information on Fighter Pilot 3D: Operation Red Flag, please visit http://www.nauticus.org/exhibits/fighter-pilot-operation-red-flag-3d.
