    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!

    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 ?
