Museum für Luftfahrt und Technik in Wernigerode
by: Ron Kraan

In the little town of Wernigerode a private group founded in 1998 the Museum for Aviation and Technology. Since then the museum is being built up and is still developing. In two halls and outside, there are approximately 20 airplanes and helicopters displayed. Also some engines, models and a mobile radar station are to be found.
All aircraft are demilled and some of them still in airworthy condition. For the flight gear collector/enthusiast, some nice items are placed in a separate room. The museum has several ejection seats, flight helmets and fully dressed mannequins.
