Back indoors again into a hangar with older airplanes.
From my visit to the Berlin-Gatow aviation museum
In this collection are some of the older and more historically famous planes. Some of these, I’d love to fly in myself.
Hanging from the ceiling, as you enter, is this little yellow airplane, 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 airplane that I wanted to see the most. (details).
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2.
I loved the Messerschmitt so much, I took more pictures from the other side.
Lets see a few more planes 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.)
Navigate: Back to Page 5 with airplanes. Back to the Homepage. Forward to even older airplanes, including the Fokker Triplane.
