McMillan Group designed and managed the May 2014 event ceremony, unveiling the CH-53K helicopter at Sikorsky in Florida. The design included: staging, audio/video reveal, lighting effects and graphics. Sound effects emulate the helicopter “flying over” the event hangar. Then virtual hangar doors open via projection and live actors. A full sized CGI version of the aircraft hovers then lands with surround sound audio and finally actors move scrim screen to reveal actual CH-53K.
