    The Bodø Aviation Museum 25 January 2015

    You do not expect to find a premier Aviation Museum 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Only Regional Government political manoeuvring can surely make these things happen.

    By extreme good fortune my boat docked at Bodø, on its way north, for just two and a half hours on the very day the museum re-opened after winter maintenance.

    It was just time for a comfortable whistle stop photo call around all the exhibits in both the Civil and Military Halls.

    Light levels are low and the aircraft are closely spaced but aerial walkways and stairways give multiple viewing opportunities. I liked it.

    In random order(thanks to Photobucket) I give you 110 shots with something for everyone here.

                  That looks like a very well packed museum! Some really interesting display setups too.

                  Nice (DeHavilland Canada) Beaver, by the way

                          Thanks for your time in photographing and posting, Mark. Many of us know what's it's like to be time pressured in a place of exquisite treasures....frustrating and rewarding at the same time!

                            Fantastic stuff! Liked the group shots of the WW2 stuff.

                              Great set of pictures, thanks for sharing. I was there a few years ago and found it to be a really comprehensive museum and it looks like it's been added to since then. Really enjoyed the displays on bringing commercial aviation to local communities, it's amazing what can be done with the will to do so.

                                Many thanks for all these photos. I am glad I have booked my trip it will be well worth while. Its good to see the hanging aircaft are visible from the walkways unlike a number of other places.
                                Hope the rest of your trip was as interesting. We sailed round Iceland last year , not many aircraft seen but it was a great trip.

                                      JU88 is the high-spot for me.

                                      Shades of what is possible with the Do17.

                                      Nice set of shots.

                                      "What you must remember" Flip said "is that nine-tenths of Cattermole's charm lies beneath the surface." Many agreed.
