China Aviation Museum, Xiaotangshan – Sunday 30th October 2016 (Grant Robinson)

Hello all,
Our visit to the amazing China Aviation Museum was the highlight of the trip for me. Whilst going around the Russian museum at Monino in 2015, trip companions John Tyler and David Fogwill told me how much bigger and better, the Chinese equivalent museum was.

They both knew as they had been already and I was assured that if impressed by Monino, the China Aviation Museum would top that. It was those words that prompted this trip out to China and I can report that they were not wrong.

We spent a total of five hours here but then I photographed what I could and we had a good look around the storage/dump area as we noticed members of the public already in that area.

These photographs can be seen at;

The below log comes about not only from my own notes but also from investigation already done by John Tomlinson and Darren Kellett – thanks guys. Those items marked in brackets, did not have any markings on them and therefore need confirmation. Construction numbers have been taken from the
sources mentioned below or Planebase.

Other sources for investigating whilst compiling my log were;
