Visitors to Britain's Bletchley Park, where Alan Turing and his team cracked the German Enigma code and helped end World War II, can now go behind the scenes of the movie based on Turning's life, The Imitation Game.
The Imitation Game: The Exhibition is now on display in the room where the movie's bar scenes were filmed at Bletchley Park.
“Filming at Bletchley Park was amazing," said star Benedict Cumberbatch. "The parts where we were at Bletchley Park were magical moments in the filming schedule. It really was very special. You really feel like you're playing slightly with ghosts. It's nerve-racking, fictionalizing what happened."

This is the ghost of airplanes past. For real, though, this is a B-29 Bomber from World War II that's been literally kept under wraps for over a year, sitting between the parking lot of Seattle's Museum of Flight and the runways at Boeing Field.
Anyone who lives near a seasonal body of water (the Great Lakes, for example) has surely seen shrink-wrapped boats being transported or stored away for the winter. The same industrial wrap comes in handy for aircraft; just Google Image search "shrink-wrap airplane" to see shots like this, of bound-up Blackhawk helicopters on a barge.
But back to the Bomber.
