The first iconic story is the Royal Flying Doctor Service, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS.
Founded by the Reverend John Flynn, it began its aero medical operations in the Northern Territory in 1939.
Using the latest innovations in holographic technology, the hologram of John Flynn is portrayed by an actor who tells the story of Flynn’s vision and its realisation into the RFDS of today.
“Bringing our founder, John Flynn, back to life as a hologram will enhance the storytelling experience for visitors to the RFDS tourist facility in Alice Springs,” RFDS Central Operations Chief Executive Officer, John Lynch, said.
