Compact and powerful BMW Flugmotor first in line with finest engines of its era. Those power units shown here come from Focke-Wulf 190 Fighter. Both London and Kraków exhibits (those cowled ones) I believe were never flown and I guess the London one might have never been fired. The photographs were taken in Science Museum in London, Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków and BMW Museum in Munchen.

Nice, almost a springtime weather pushed me today to make a little drive out of Warsaw. On my way back I reached small museum in Sochaczew to take some photos of MiG 21R photo-recon displayed there. This one of production number 94R011706 was delivered to Poland during November of 1969. In service until 1994, when written off moved to museum in Sochaczew. Now the plane is in sorry state, typical for outdoor exhibits. Sad a bit and I do not see any hope for her to be restored. MiG 21 R is my favourite version of this classic jet. I took those photos with recent Eduard issue which I of course already bouhgt. Hope some of you will find it useful. Enjoy.
