Continuing These Kind of Airplanes …
Back indoors again into a hangar with older planes.
From my visit to the Berlin-Gatow aviation museum
In this collection are some of the older and more historically famous airplanes. Some of these, I’d love to fly in myself.
Hanging from the ceiling, as you enter, is this little yellow planes, some kind of Piper Cub. I didn’t make it into a high resolution clickable link, because it’s not that special.
But this is special. Another Lockheed F-104G Starfighter. They are gorgeous. (details).
Here is the Messerschmitt . It’s probably the airplanes that I wanted to see the most. (details).
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2.
Lets see a few more airplanes from inside this collection.
The Vertol H-21 C (V-43), or Shawnee. (details).
They have several Mig 21’s outdoors too. Here’s an indoor one.
The Mikojan-Gurewitch MiG-21 Fishbed D. (details).
This next one, the Jak-11, is also still used for aerobatic training, in Canada where I live.
The Jakowlew Jak-11. Moose. (details).
Finally, here’s a nicely labelled MiG-15 Midget.
The Mikojan-Gurewitsch Mig-15 UTI Midget. (details).
The Museum is especially proud of this Messerschmitt Me 163 B. (details).
(But ultimately, if it didn’t explode on landing, it would be hell to fly it.)
