    Krakow Aviation Museum - Poland

    Post  Aldo on Mon Jun 04, 2012 2:56 pm

    We have been mentioning this museum in a different context and I wish to share a few photos of the site which I took some time ago. There are many aircraft in varying state of repair all over the place and I will not add captions to the photos but leave these for discussion.

    Hope you like!

    ...and this concludes the first set of photos of the Krakow Museum. There are many more photographs of the restored aircraft inside the hangars, but these will follow in due course.

    That's quite a collection Aldo.. and some very interesting colour schemes especially on the Fishbeds.

    These are just part of the external collection. There are more outside and even more in the hangars. I will hopefully upload more this week.

    Ryan Air and a good cheap hotel should do the trick!

    The Museum takes some finding but you should manage just fine.

    Besides, Krakow is a beautiful city! I will definitely be going back one of these days.

    That is some Museum Twisted Evil

    How are they going to manage to put them all wings inside the hangars, when they're all finally restored Rolling Eyes ?

    You're welcome Rob!  Believe me, the photos do not do justice to this magnificent place.  It is a must-see for all aircraft lovers.
