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.

D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS 406 Walkaround

After the Bf-109 , here is a short walkaround of the Adolph Saurer AG license-built D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS-406 also exposed at the Swiss Airforce museum at Dubendorf (Switzerland). One advice, if you go in Switzerland say D-3801, not M.S. 406 or you will have to handle a diplomatic issue  - n'est ce pas GĂ©rard :) Below are a few pictures of the cockpit taken through the windows ... And finally, some pictures of the engine, a Hispano Suiza HS-51 12Y
