Each year in August the Aviodrome Museum at Lelystad AP (NL) organizes a fly-in for Warbird and Oldtimer aircraft.
The National Aviation Museum was established in 1960 as the Aeroplanorama at the old Schiphol/Amsterdam AP. After having been closed for four years it reopened its doors to the public in 1971 at the new Amsterdam-Schiphol AP , now called Aviodome Museum. Finally it moved to Lelystad AP in 2003 and its name was changed in Aviodrome Museum .It houses a fine collection of historic aircraft , both of civil and military origin.Hans visited the museum several times, but these impressions date from August 2011 and November 2012. Frank added a few of his own.
A few pictures of Warbirds that took part in the Air Show at Naval Air Station Valkenburg (NL) in June1990. Hans was present and watched the starting-up of the B-25 Mitchell of the Duke of Brabant Air Force from close-by.
On September 18th , 1971 Eindhoven AB opened its doors to the public. Especially for the Dutch Air Force-fans it was quite an interesting Open Day . Herewith we present you a selection of photos taken during this event , made by Frank and Hans , of which a few were made – by permission- in the operational area.
In 1985 it was forty years ago that World War II ended and therefore a special Liberation Airshow was organized at Rotterdam-Zestienhoven Airport on May 5th . Lots of Warbirds and historic aircraft were present and this gallery shows a selection of pictures, taken by Hans.
