Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History, Brussels

Recommended Posts

Images from the rather vast military museum in the centre of Brussels. The aircraft hall is impressive, but some of the machines are run down and desperately need attention, and a good clean.

The collection looks amazing, it's just a shame that the exhibits are not particularly well cared for.

Yes indeed. Was impressed with the museum as a whole - it's huge, but the aircraft are not well looked after at all. Note the flat tyres on the CF-100, the Nord and the Hurri. The Oxford, in the background in the Mosquito image, hasn't had its nose for years.

SUPERN...Thank you for sharing your  IMPRESSIVE  collection of photos.

 

:thumbsup:

 

 

(don't they have curators to look after them as many other museums in the world do?).

It is an excellent museum, that I first encountered in 1982. I'm pleased to see that it is still crammed full of goodies :)
