Some Images from the excellent Deutsches Technikmuseum, the aircraft are difficult to photograph because of pillars all round them and a glass frontage that casts them all into shadow from certain angles. Still, amazing aircraft.
The building's exterior from the footbridge over the Landwehr Canal. The Dakota is a Berlin Airlift veteran and used to sit outside the terminal at Tempelhof.
A model of the Deutsches Luftfahrt Sammlung, the Nazis' aviation collection that was bombed in 1943 and burned out. Last time the RAF were allowed there again. Some of the collection was squirrelled away into Poland and survive at the MLP in Cracow. The RAF Museum's DH.9A came from here and was gifted with the Cracow museum for a Spitfire.
The building's frontage; the collection was moved into this purpose built exhibition centre for its grand opening in 1936 to coincide with the XI Olympiade. Note the Spitfire in the foreground. There was a garden out front with captured aircraft within it.
A slice of the Dornier Do X flying boat that was the centrepiece of the Deutsches Luftfahrt Sammlung, although the hull and sections of the wing survived the fire, its remains were subsequently scrapped.
Missiles and stuff. From L to R; Rheintochter R1 SAM with a HWK 109 509 rocket engine behind, suspended from the ceiling is FZG 76 or Fi 103, Ru 344 X 4 AAM, Henschel Hs 117 behind and Hs 293 guided missiles, He 162, Bu 181.
Love that BU181. The sister of Claus von Stauffenberg (Valkyrie) - Countess Melitta Schenk Grafin vo Stauffenberg was shot down by a Mustang while flying one. She was a very qualified and skilled test pilot. Did a huge amount of work on the Ju87 and due to that was saved from a ghastly fate after the attempt on Hitler. Love that it is a real panzerfaust machine. Also take a good look at all that rocket and guided missile development housed there. Beats the allied effort into a cocked hat !
