In 1990 Hans visited the German Hermeskeil Aviation Museum. His introduction to the gallery he created on this site was:
“In the sceneric hill country of the Hunsrück near Hermeskeil in Germany an interesting aircraft museum is located , owned by the Junior Family. Hans made some pictures there on August 21st , 1990.”
In July 2016 Frank visited the same place. His pictures show the differences between then and now:
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.
On the premises of the huge Pensacola Naval Air Station (home of a.o. the demonstration team of the US Navy – the Bue Angels) is the NNAM, a museum that deals with the aviation legacy of both the US Navy, USMarines and Coast Guard.
The Air Force Armament Museum in Florida exhibits aviation warfare armament (bombs, rockets, missiles), as well as the platforms that are being used to fire resp. drop them. In this report we of course focus on the latter: on the aircraft that the museum displays.
