Photos Flugausstellung L.+P. Junior Hermeskeil

Flugausstellung L.+P. Junior in Hermeskeil is one of the best aviation museums we have encountered. The aircraft and the museum ground are all very well maintained and the collection is impressive. Viewing platforms allow a view in the cockpit fore many aircraft on display. We have photographed every Soviet aircraft plus other exhibits like Jet Helmets, Ejection Seats and various jet engines.

The highlights of the museum are probably the large passenger aircraft like the Ilyushin Il-14, Ilyushin Il-18, Antonov An-26 and a Tupolev Tu-134. The Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau is well represented with MiG-15UTI, MiG-17F, MiG-21BIS, MiG-21F, MiG-21MF, MiG-21SPS, MiG-21-US, MiG-23BN, MiG-23MF and MiG-23MLfighters. Other interesting aircraft are the Sukhoi Su-7BM and the Su-22M4, the beautifull Aero L-39ZO Albatros, an Antonov An-2P and a Polish Let Z-37 Cmelak. Mil helicopters include a Mi-1, Mi-2, Mi-4, Mi-6A, Mi-8T, Mi-9, Mi-14PL and an Mi-24P. A Kamov Ka-26 from the East German police is probably the most charming exhibit.
