Tikkakoski (Suomen Ilmavoimamuseo) – Saturday 16th June 2018 (John Tomlinson)

After leaving Halli, we took the 90 minute journey towards our final destination and hotel for the night.
Our target here was the museum, Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo at the military base at Jyvaskyla-Tikkakoski~Lansi-Suomi.

This airfield was also where the Finnish Air Force 100 year anniversary celebrations was to take place. In fact we saw a few flights as we arrived at the museum. Unfortunately the remainder of the days display was cut short, as one of the Finnish hawks had burst a tyre on landing.

Also noted as we drove to the hotel after the visit was the Gate Guard displayed on pole outside Air Force Academy. this is a public road. Can be seen from N62.40033, E25.60323

The museum was staying open a lot longer than usual as they did expect a lot of visitors, in fact it was going to be open until 2200hrs, so no rush to view the exhibits was required.


Noted between 1635-1840hrs and in order as seen, thus in line with my photograph folder.
