Foreign Airfield VisitPast Tours

Lappeenranta (Karjalan Ilmailumuseo) – Friday 15th June 2018 (John Tomlinson)

Another airfield with a museum.
We had arranged visits to both area’s and it was well worth it.
The Aeroclub owner was in the middle of a chat about the history of the airfield and club when an Antonov An-12BP landed………………… he was as surprised as us. We later found out when we went for a closer look at the main airport terminal that it was bringing in horses. They did not know how many, so they were counting them!!!
A great little field with very friendly people running both area’s.
