RepTar Szolnok Aviation Museum, Szolnok

#1 of 9 in Museums in Northern Great Plain
The Szolnoki Repülőmúzeum is a large museum displaying old military and civilian aircraft and aircraft engines in Szolnok, Hungary. It is located next to the "Lt. Ittebei Kiss József" Helicopter Base of the Hungarian Air Force.
The museum started out as the aircraft and technical peripherals collection of the "Kilián György Flight Technical College" in 1973. Since then many things changed but the collection remained, growing always bigger. Originally the museum focused on military aviation but later civil and utility aircraft were introduced to the collection which is divided into two: the open air part, and a separate indoor area with weaponry, uniforms and photographic collections. The museum also stores the remains of a number of Second World War warplanes shot down over Hungary and it plays a leading role in salvaging and conservation of such wrecks. As result of these efforts the museum recovered an Il-2, two Me-109s and a LaGG-5. The collection also included a Lisunov Li-2 which was since restored to airworthy condition, thus becoming the only airworthy exemplar of the kind.
