Prague-Kbely (Letecké Muzeum Kbely) – Saturday 31st August 2019 (John Tomlinson)

A fantastic museum and the second of many that we would visit on this trip. I was last here in July 2004, however that was a tourist trip with the wife. I was lucky to get an afternoon here, as she wanted to go shopping….. I didn’t.

For those never been, the exhibits are well organised in hangars which are dedicate to era’s. Quite a number are also outside, both in the museum grounds, with some also close to the museum but on the live base ramps.

As usual, below is my photograph listing, which is generally in the same order as my photographs on my link below.
