Doug Kibbey suggested me to post a link to a selection of pictures I took in Kbely, just outside Praha:

Good move...the stuff in the album is great. I always like seeing Aero AE45's since seeing the one hanging in the Prague airport. Cutest little thing!

In all honestly, I am rarely satisfied by the pictures I take inside aviation museums, at least compared to my vehicles shots. The plane museums tend to have very busy display, where it's hard to isolate the subject.

Anyway, I have accumulated quite a few interesting plane museums photo albums, from places like Belgrade, Munich, Berlin, Milano and Dubendorf. Sooner or later I'll find the time to post them all.

Aircraft are sprawling devices, mainly of course, because of the wings. Unless one just happens to have unlimited amounts of covered space (and who would that be?), they will necessarily be crowded together and overlapped, more-or-less like the hangar and flight decks of an aircraft carrier. Even well-funded and managed museum like USAF Dayton, Smithsonian Air and Space, Udvar-Hazy, Duxford, IWM, Brussels, etc. have to be like that. Outdoor exhibits tend to be less crowded (Pima), but aircraft (like tanks) don't respond well to being left out in sun and weather. Consequently, the best aircraft shots are always those of ones that can and do fly...and that's way too few. Sad

Post away, I'm sure they'll still be well worth seeing.

What prevent from posting is that I shot in order to achieve best quality, I shot in RAW and I I convert in JPG later, one picture at time. It's a time consuming process and I have a huge backlog.
