Does anyone have a complete listing of the aircraft that was part of this collection before it was destroyed/dispersed? Or can you suggest a website or book where I can find it?

I'm curious to know to what extent they added captured aircraft to their collection or if it was strictly german aircraft only.

Thanks for your help!

Hi

This collection was a unique collection and did indeed have in it's inventory quite a few Beute aircraft from many countries aswell as captured First World War!

Airco DH 9A
Sopwith Camel
Spad S13
Spad SA-2

Bloch MB 200 (ex Czech a/c)
Fairey Battle I (ex RAF)
Gloster Gladiator Mk II (ex Baltic States?)
Hawker Hurricane I (ex RAF)
Yak 1 (ex Russian)
MiG 3 (ex Russian)
Morane MS 230 (ex French)
Morane MS 406 (ex French)
UTI 4 (ex Russian)
I-16 (ex Russian) 'Rata'
Potez 63-11 (ex French)
PZL P-38/I (ex Polish)
PZL P.11c (ex Polish)
PWS 26 (ex Polish) 'still with Lw markings'
Spifire II (ex RAF)
Wellington II (ex RAF) 'in wrecked condition'

a mystery!!!

Stinson L-5 Sentinel; s/n 42-98643

I am not sure whether this was a part of the original collection but when some of the aircraft were discovered at Krakow in Poland after the war most of the aircraft were from this collection. The Sentinel was discovered with them.

Can anybody help.

In response to Hans when he visited the Museum some the beute aircraft may have been taken out and stored. Like all museums evrything changes from time to time, things added and items taken away.

The Luftwaffe too had a museum were all of the collection consisted of foreign and beute aircraft called BeutePark de Lw 5 at Nanterre in Paris.

Kind regards

You've wrote "I am not sure whether this was a part of the original collection but when some of the aircraft were discovered at Krakow in Poland after the war most of the aircraft were from this collection."
Planes were evacuated from museum in 1943 and were sent in six (?) different places. In Czarnkow near Poznan (Poland) Germans sent PZL P.11c, PWS-26 and several other planes. Most of them were recovered after the war and is exhibited in museum in Krakow. DH-9a (F1010) was exchanged for Spitfire XVI and one plane is in Berlin. I can add also Hawk used by Udet (still with Olympic rings), Me 209 (fuselage, wings are in other museum and this museum probablu has sth else from original collection), Halberstadt CL-II 15459/17 fabric nr 1046 and Aviatik C-III 12250/17 fabric nr 1996. I think that Hans could not see some captured planes because they could had German markings (i.e. Polish PWS-26 and PZL P.38/I Wilk).

Hi

Thanks for the info:

I thought that some at least were left at Krakow.

Do you have the information as to where the other locations in Poland that the aircraft were stored?

I did not mention the Hawk, ex D-IRIK because the list only dealt with beute (booty) aircraft.

Only the PWS 26 was displayed with Lw markings VG+AS; the PZL P.38/I kept its original Polish markings. This was the same as all of the other beute aircraft in the collection.

Kind regards

Tom

Unfortunately only one place was found in Poland. Maybe other planes are still hidden?
Few years ago (maybe eight?) I saw two pics from museum in Berlin. Our PZL P.38/I had no markings. No German signs and no Polish. Unfortunately this plane still is missing.

Well, I'm looking for any info about any captured planes because I (and many other visitors of 12 O'Clock) prepared website about captured planes. World War Two section is open but there is only list of captured planes. More info and pics will be available soon. I just need some time to prepare all photos (almost 200) to put them on.

missing Beute planes
Wed May 9 01:47:00 2001


Howdy Y'all

When I had a chance to visit the museum, The Bombing at berlin was in full force.
There was some kind of evacuation because there were some empty spaces. Not far away from the museum there were some bombhits and afterwards Moabith was hit badly. At one time on an Sunday, we were called out to help clearing the bombdamage and reached one cellar in which 22 woman end children were huddled An very scared look on their faces. And all were dead, the results of an "Airmine" An large bomb that exploded in the air and bursted longues of the victims.
Not very far away from the museum.

I never had a chance to visit the museum again.

Bad memories.

Hans

Seaching for tips about me 262 trip.
Fri Jun 15 01:31:49 2001


In this sommer I wanna go to visit some Me262 historic
places. Many years ago I saw the Me262 in Munich and I was in Parchim where Franz Schall crashed. Does anybody know for example a nice little Luftwaffe museum nearby an airfield?
I start off in the Netherlands. Maybe I do it in August and visit also Speyer for the aircraft exhibition.

I am afraid the only me262 you can find in germany is the one in munuch. but if you are interested to visit a good aviatic museum, try the one in hanover. they have a me 109 g, a fw 190 and a spitfire mx 14 there. and a lot about WWII history.

Wolf,
you are wrong. Till Friday I was in Prague and I visited the Ceck Air Force Museum in Prague-Kbely.
The is a Avia S-92 which is similar as the Me 262. They had a Bücker Bestmann, R4 Rockets, a MK 108 and lot of former things of the Luftwaffe.

I would to visit the Museum in Hermeskeil on the motorway to Bonn. It's much more worth to see as
the 'storage' of Speyer or Sindasheim.

regards

Alex

The Virtual Aviation Museum website's strength is in its listing of aviation museums in Europe. While there is the occasional photo and minimal technical and historical detail, these are not the site's strenghts. The address of the site is:

http://www.luftfahrtmuseum.com/htmi/general/i.htm


Sections of Luftwaffe interest:


<U>Aircraft types</U>

Listed by name, designer, and category, a broad, but light depth coverage is made of much of the world's aircraft output.


<U>References</U>

Currently, there is only a listing of magazines worldwide. The intent is to add sections on famous aviators and a dictionary of aviation terms.

I am looking information/photos of the two Curtiss Hawks that Udet used to test his dive bombing theories. I believe one was used at the 1936 Olympics.

Thanks in advance.

At first, the Aircraft Engine Historical Society website didn't strike a chord with me, as it looked to contain information only on American and British engines, hardly the stuff of Luftwaffe interest. However, looks can be deceiving and one really needs to explore this site thoroughly. It has a very helpful search engine and one of the site's most noteworthy features is exploration of the Sarah Clark collection at NARA II. There are a fair number of color photos of German engines in museums. Another unique feature is a very extensive guide to scanning of historical documents. The site address is:

http://www.enginehistory.org/

Search Engine

Working down the main page, one comes directly to the search engine. It is here that one of the hidden assets of this site jumps to life. If you type in Jumo 004, it will look for any Jumo engine. Photographs available of Jumo engines in various museum collections can than be viewed through the internal links. If there is a book or review reference, this will also have an internal link for viewing.

One weakness is that some engine and engine location identification information is not given. Also, on one page, the thumbnail size references are so small that the photos are hard to make out. However, the enlargements are of excellent size and quality.

Book Reviews

Working down the main page, you come to the site index on the left. As I said, much of the site is devoted to American and British engines and thus, so far, every index listing above book reviews has nothing covering German engines. One book reviewed is "The Bombing of Rolls-Royce at Derby in two World Wars". Within this is some discussion of the BMW 801 and Do 217. Beyond this review, the books reviewed have a decided anglo/American slant.

The 6 pages of text are followed by a page showing how a poor original document scanned in full color at 4,729 KB, can actually be improved upon by proper color channel selection, reducing document size to 35 to 36 KB.

This page is followed with a table entitled "Alternative Raster File Formats, Benefits and Applications", giving the pro's and con's of bmp, tiff, gif, and jpeg formats.

Index of Selected Engine Information in the Sarah Clark Files at the National Archives II, by Kimble D. McCutcheon

Quoting from the site:

"The Sarah Clark Files contain a wealth of information on Air Force aircraft, engines, and equipment from 1916 to 1951. This is a copy of engine topics in the finding aid."

While the emphasis is probably on U.S. built engines, McCutcheon goes to considerable trouble to explain what the Sarah Clark collection is and how to search within it. I have been through the same indexes he has and their is a wealth of information in the Sarah Clark collection on German engines and aircraft, so becoming a bit familiar with its in's and out's is time well spent.

As McCutcheon describes the index, its arrangement is a bit arcane, which is being generous. In general, the index is arranged in chronological packets of time. Each packet will start out at the lowest decimal filing system number, then work up in ascending numerical sequence. Once done, the next packet and so on will run through the sequence, repeating over and over. For the 1939-45 time frame, you will have numerous seemingly overlapping packets time-wise. See McCutcheon's binder listings to see what I mean by this. Thus, if you want to hunt up information on BMW engines, you'll need to slog your way through a large chunk of the index. Nor can you really count on just looking for one decimal filing system number, like the 452.7 noted in McCutcheon's illustration. You might find related information under a variety of numbers. So, to do a thorough job of it, plan to spend about half a day jotting notes from these records. As can be seen, the RD numbers are the connection needed to get to the actual storage boxes.

Of especial value on the site is that McCutcheon has copied in pdf format all the 452 series engine reference index pages, which include foreign engines. Each page is downloadable to your computer. So, if engines are your thing, you can download all these pages to your computer and make your selections before you get to NARA II.

The Czech language site Nadace Letecké historické spoleènosti (LHS) Vyškov is for the Muzeum LHS Vyškov. While an English language version is planned, only a Czech language version is currently available. As there is no Czech to English translation engine available on Altavista, my coverage here is limited to what I can ascertain visually. Of particular interest is the archaeological discovery of a number of Luftwaffe aircraft. The site address is:

Sections of interest are:
