This gallery features pictures of aircraft that have been disposed of or preserved in one way or another; the airframes depicted here (gate-guards, monuments, eye-catchers, etc.) are photographed in the years 2011 onward. Note that some of the aircraft portrayed here are no longer present at the given location.
W&R portrayed in the USA are dealt with in a separate gallery (also in this album “Preserved Aircraft”).
In Darwin, in the north of Australia, is the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre: a collection of pristine and well restored airframes, that reflect the history of the RAAF. Parked outside are a number of cannibalized civil airframes. Frank visited te museum whilst traveling through Australia in April 2016.
The Internationales Luftfahrt Museum (International Aviation Museum) is in Villingen-Schwenningen, a twin-city in the south of Germany, near Stuttgart.
