Lelystad Aviodrome

Post by LondonEye » Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:27 pm

Older members may remember that there used to be an Aviodome Museum in the middle of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. It was forced to move and in 2003 opened at Lelystad Airport as the Aviodrome. It is fairly easily reached by train and bus from Amsterdam Central. It is an active airfield, and some of the aircraft on view are airworthy. There is a replica of Schiphol Airports 1928 Terminal building providing an interesting backdrop for photos.
Of particular civil interest are An-2, B747, DC2, DC3, DC4, DH104, F-27, Fk50, Fk100 and a L-749A Constellation.
An enjoyable day out.

:D

Pete,

I remember the Museum at Schiphol- have yet to visit Leystad but may do in the next 12 months- obviously to see the excellent collection there and some of the based light aircraft.

Bob :cool:

Go for it Bob, you will have a great day.
If you are into photos, the lighting inside is reasonable, but like many museums the exhibits are rather squeezed together in places.
There is a small raised area for viewing the airfield, from which you will only see a handful of light a/c in front of the hangars.
We were tight for time for exploring, but I have read it is a friendly field.
Pete
