Random pictures from the Aviation Museum of Riga

Some random pics from the aviation museum of Riga. This place is located 50 meters from the International airport and is just AWE-SOME. For 5 lvl (about 8 euros) you can visit this museum which is the one of the biggest museum in Europe dedicated to soviet-era military aircraft.

Check my other posts for a Antonov An-2 walkaround, Sukhoi Su-7 walkaround and pictures of the Mil Mi-6 cockpit from the same museum.

Walkaround of the Messerschmitt Bf-109 E3 (J-355; Werk NummerlFactory Number 2422) exhibited at the Swiss Air Force Museum at Dubendorf Air Base near Zurich, Switzerland.

Northrop P-61 Black Widow - Pictures Compilation

The Northrop P-61 Black Widow night fighter is definitely my favorite aircraft. The idea here is just to provide a few interesting pictures on the subject (see below for credits).

The P-61 was the first aircraft specifically designed  with a radar


The radar cone was not painted on the first aircraft and was made of fibreglass.
