Flightgear at the "Flyhistorisk Museum", Sola, Norway

sola_logo.gif (5702 bytes)The Norwegian air museum at Sola Air Base near Stavanger is worth a visit, no matter whether you are interested in aircraft or flightgear. They have a display of ejection seats through the last 50 years with mannequins dressed in period flightgear, rounded off by a display of an F-16 pilot with parachute, dinghy and all his survival gear. There are one or two trifling details that, given the opportunity, I would question, but the museum deserves high marks for a fine display of flightgear.
