The 11th and 12th grade students of the 2014-2015 Historical Preservation course at Mid-Pacific Institute used a Faro laser scanner to digitally preserve a 1940 Douglas Dauntless Divebomber. The divebomber at the Pacific Aviation Museum, was identified by the students in the class as in need of historical preservation because it played a crucial role in the Battle of Midway in June of 1942 during World War II.
