  • Air Force Museum - Karlsruhe-Baden Airpark

    All,

    Having been in Germany recently due to work commitments, I had occasion to go to
    Baden Airpark. Ryanair operate a direct flight from Dublin once a day, approx 4-5
    times a week (check the website for the days in question).

    ANYWAY...... there is a small Air Force museum in the Airpark (in fact, the location
    was a former Air Force base until 19 January 1993. Two euro admission, open
    only at the weekends

    See HERE for further info....

    A RCAF fighter squadron was resident there.

    Got a clatter of photos, hopefully will post a few up here in the near future....

    Worth a visit if any of you are ever flying to here with Cryin' Air

    Truck Driver. Many thanks for posting this. In the early 90's I used to spend weekends in Drusenheim just across the Rhine into France.

    I always remembered cycling into Germany and passing a sort of gate guard in the town (Solllingen) of an old RCAF fighter. For the life of me I cannot recall what particular aircraft it was. The museum was not opened during my period there but im sure the German Air Force were still using the base but no operational aircraft where there.

    Many thanks again for posting the link. I hope to return to Alsace next year and will pop across the border for a visit to the museum.

    NB I checked it out on Google Earth, here is the aircraft I talking about. Not too sure what it is, any takers?.

      There is no problem that cannot be fixed with high explosive.

        Its got the shape of a Starfighter, but the last time I was there, it was certainly not a Starfighter. I wonder if the orginal aircraft that was there has been removed to the museum??.
