Visited Päijät-Häme Aviation Museum to get some pics of some IVL planes (IVL K.1 Kurki, IVL Kotka and IVL Haukka). They are are planes which are manufactured by Finnish state aircraft works (nowadays Patria aviation). This museum has really interesting atmosphere and charm. Most of planes are in decent shape, but some older examples (like ones I wanted to photograph) were in rather sad state. But they are preserved and that’s most important.
I will be posting several sets of pictures in coming days so stay tuned. Now is good time to subscribe to updates of this blog, see to right (subscribe-form). Also, pls. visit museum, it is really nice place and you support aviation history preservation.
Pics will appear with tag ‘Päijät-Häme Aviation museum‘ (see right tag pane). Meanwhile some pics. One plane which is really extremely rare is Blackburn Ripon II F which, I believe is the only original example in existence. It is rather maginificent plane and the pics do not make justice to it. The size of plane is something to be seen.
