The new additions to the museum’s collection are a mixed batch, three Japanese World War II fighters, a couple of gliders, a couple of unlikely experimental aircraft and a few more.
Kawasaki N1K1 (Rex). A Japanese floatplane fighter.
Kawasaki N1K1-J (George). An Imperial Japanese Navy fighter.
Kawanishi N1K2-J (George). An advanced version of the N1K1-J.
Loire 46. A French 1930s fighter aircraft.
SAN Jodel D.177. A 1950s French light aircraft still in service today.
Schleicher ASW 28. A high performance glider of the 2000s.
Schneider Grunau Baby I. One of the first gliders, made in the 1930s.
SNECMA C450 Coleoptere. A 1950s French experimental aircraft.
SPARTA/WRESAT. This rocket launched Australia’s first satellite.
Tsybin LL-3. A Russian 1940s experimental rocket powered glider.
I wonder what might be added next weekend. Perhaps a nice Dassault Mirage 2000 will be among them.
