On this site we would like to share some useful information about the huge number of preserved aircraft here in Europe. In almost every country you will find some nice examples, as you can see below. There are a couple of airports as well, where you can find a number of stored aircraft – awaiting a new owner or the scrapping. But despite those sad stories, more and more airplanes find a home in museums or exhibitations. We mentioned some of those as well, especially those, where really rare and interesting planes can be found!
This map is very useful, when you’re planning a trip or similar! Just take a quick look here, if there are any (for you) interesting aircraft or museums nearby – finding such things in this collection is much easier and faster than searching in the www for hours!
But we couldn’t add all aircraft (so not every little Cessna or Piper somewhere in Europe), because the map would have been too full then – that’s why we also couldn’t mark every little museum! So we decided to don’t add helicopters, small fighters and all aircraft, which are smaller than an Antonov 2!
Some stuff is still missing so if there are any aircraft or museums you know, which aren’t mentioned on the map, but worth a mark, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We are also very thankful for actual pictures or new information, if an aircraft should have been removed for example! Just fill out the contact form.
Some useful information about the structure first. We divided the layers into:
– preserved aircraft in Europe
– preserved aircraft in Turkey (because it’s not a 100% european country, we listed this extra)
– storage airports (Europe and Turkey together)
– museums, which were worth be mentioned in our opinion (Europe and Turkey together)
The marks are listed in alphabetical order of the countrycodes. Click on the icon on the map to get more information like pictures or useful links!
We hope this map will be a useful companion in the future for you and a help to make your trips even successfuller…
