    I will post up the pics from the museums I have been to over here in Europe, mostly the Deutsches Museum and Sinsheim museum (because I have the most pics from them).

    Good stuff there guys. I have a number of pictures up from the ones I have been to (Hendon/IWM London). Been to Duxford to but don't have any pictures :(

    Can't really be bothered to find them all on here so I'll posts the Flickr link...

    London: RAF Museum, Hendon, IWM and HMS Belfast - a set on Flickr

    Most of the pictures are from Hendon, with 1 from the IWM and a couple of HMS Belfast.

    Another great selection, Marcel and Hugh!
    Marcel, is PH-AJU the only DC2 left, and is the Mitchell the Duke of Brabant's?
    Just finished reading (again) 'Flying Dutchman', by van Kopp, about the RAF's Dutch Naval Mitchell squadron. If you haven't seen this book, let me know and I'll send it to you. A very interesting read, with some good pics.
    Terry.

    Hi Terry,

    This is indeed the Uiver "replica" (although an original DC2), the only DC2 still flying. I have some more nice shots of her if you like. The B25 is indeed the Duke of Brabant. She sometimes flies over my house and is always great to see. I don't know this book Flying Dutchman. Is this about 320th squadron?

    Hi Marcel. It would be nice to see more shots of the DC2, thank you. I'm still looking for the pictures I took of the Mitchell III, now in RAF markings, just after it arrived at Duxford, UK, in, I think, 1988 or 89. I was doing an article on Mitchells in RAF service, and was allowed access to get some nice pics, including interior and detail shots, which are somewhere so safe I can't find them! It was then when I first read the book, for my research. As far as I remember, yes, it was 320 Sqn, RAF (Royal Netherlands Naval Air Sqn.), I can't quite get to the book to check, as it's under a pile of other stuff, and I'm too stiff and sore to lift it at the moment. It's by Hans van der Kopp, who rose to high rank after the war. He escaped from, I believe, Java, and it is a very interesting read, although, having been translated into English, it lacks something here and there; would be much better in Dutch, I think!
    I was given the present copy by a friend, along with a lot of other books, and you are most welcome to it if you would like it. I have noted/copied any parts relevant to my needs. Send me a PM with an address, and I'll mail it once the Christmas 'rush' is over, otherwise it might go astray in the mail.
    Terry.

    Thanks Graeme - didn't know there was one, let alone two! Nice to see they're around.

    Thanks Terry, I would like to read that. I'll send you a PM.
    The one in Lelystad is still flying.
    Some extra pics, you see her firing up her engines and flying overhead. I probably have some more analogue photo's, I'll look them up when I have more time.

    Thanks Marcel. Great shots, I particularly like the one of the engine start; very atmospheric.

    Beautiful! I know it's not a 'Dakota', but it looks so similar of course, and reminds me of the late 50's and 1960's, at Newcastle Airport, near where I grew up. Dakotas, Vikings and Ambassadors were the main airlliners there then, which really increased my already growing love of aviation. We also had a couple of civilian Ansons, lots of Austers, Proctors, Tiger Moths and so on. But what we wanted, instead of these 'common' types, were Viscounts, and the modern jets!! Happy memories!

    Thanks, BTW, there are some more unique a/c in the museum. The one in the 13th picture in post 7 is the sole surviving combat a/c of the LVA, which fought in May 1940. It's Fokker C.V 634, a reconnaissance bomber.

    This interesting one, although Nikola Tesla beside Belgrade is a collection opened half only at an airport can be found.
    Here can be found it 1999.03.27 shot off at Novi Sad f-117-es his stealthy wrecks, and the aviano-i F-16-os American machine shot off by his wrecks and few Serbias. The Yugoslav airplane industry was represented in full whole one's is, and many of the variants of very many contemporary American fighters can be found here. And they may not lag behind of course the Soviet aeroplane known well already and helicopters.
