Xiaotangshan - China Aviation Museum

Post by Homer »


Just finalised the bulk on two articles on the China Aviation Museum (aka Datangshan); a regular overview and a pictorial overview

I see the purpose of this second article as to give a historical overview of this museum, and help enthusiasts to identify all airframes present here.<br>
I did not take images of all airframes, and I'll be the first to acknowledge not all are of a good quality :-)
So when you have other images, please add them or even replace mine!

So when you have images of ....
  • Current airframes not yet in the pictorial overview: the P-40 replica, the AH-64 replica, the Zimbabwe Provost, Il-62 "B-2024", the MiG-17/J5 without outer skin, J5 "31581" and L-5 "15"...
  • Older images of those current airframes, preferably when with other colour schemes etc, especially when pre-2000...
  • Images of aircraft not noted during our visit (those in historical overview). And again those pre-2000 are especially welcome.
  • Better quality then mine, in particular those in the cavern.
  • Any other image which enhances our understanding of the airframes in this museum (present or past)
.... please do upload them and add them to this overview!

Hi, if you are planning a visit, remember [b]the Museum is closed fom June 15 to September 30, 2009[/b] because of a total makeover.
I was there today and the place looked almost empty, there were lots of workers busy. The duty officer told me to come back on october 1. :(
