“KAMIKAZE: DAY OF DARKNESS, DAY OF LIGHT”
EXHIBIT RETURNS TO THE INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM
*****
MULTIMEDIA EXHIBITION RECOUNTING
KAMIKAZE ATTACKS ON THE USS INTREPID IN WWII
RUNS EVERY HOUR ON THE HALF HOUR


Experience true heroism under fire as the multimedia experience “Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light” returns to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for the first time since 2006 when the museum closed to undergo a nearly two-year renovation. 

“Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light” transports visitors back to November 25, 1944, when the USS Intrepid was struck by two kamikaze suicide planes. The exhibit includes a memorial wall that honors the 69 officers and crew members who gave their lives while serving aboard Intrepid. 

A multimedia experience, audio, video, lighting controls, smoke and flame effects, projectors and five synchronized video screens comprise the exhibit.  All systems combine to create an immersive, on-location environment experience that tells the history of the kamikaze attacks in a gripping and memorable way. 

A segment of the video projection is available for viewing, downloading and distribution at http://www.sendspace.com/file/zdfapz .  The video is courtesy of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Experiencing the exhibit is free with the price of admission to the museum. 
 
“Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light” runs every hour on the half hour at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
