    Egyptian National Military Museum IDs

    folks,

    I'm just putting together a web page about the Egyptian National Military Museum at the Citadel in Cairo, but I've found that I didn't record what a couple of the aircraft types were.

    Here's the first one, looks something like a Yak-52 to me, but the placard referred to it as a "back IOS", or something like that - the placards had lots of spelling mistakes and I'm not quite sure that the letter "I" was really an "I":




    Is this second one an Auster of some sort, or something quite different?




    thanks,

    Richard.

        Bob Ogden's Africa & Australasia has:

        Zlin Z-226 Trener, no ID.

        Yakovlev Yak-18A, 621

        The Zlin served with the air force from 1957 - 75 and the Yak from 1958 - 74.

        In addition he mentions them having a Campbell Cricket, G-AYBX, a Heliopolis Goumhouria 6, 202 (based on the Bestmann) MiG 17F and 21F-13 PZL 104 Wilga, and an Su-7.

        Knowing your globe-trotting, Richard, I'm surprised you don't have the books. Though getting old now they are still very useful.

        HTH.

          James,

          What's a book? 8^O

          I'm a child of the internet!

          I saw the MiG 17 and 21, the Su-7 and the PZL 104, but I can't say I saw the Cricket or Goumhouria there.

          Thanks for the info, much appreciated!

          Richard.

            Well, it's something I should be writing rather than using someone else's to help you with!

            I don't ever travel without the appropriate Ogden, and it can be read in places that the internet don't work, like, for instance, on the airfield...

              The Cricket and Gomhouria are inside the museum, so you would probably have to queue to go in to see them. The rest are all outside, including a Wilga light plane, which you didn't mention. If you are missing any photos, I can help out.

                Albert,

                Thanks for the offer, I'll probably just go ahead with what I've got.

                  I had visited the inside of the museum in 2013 - but there were no aircraft to be seen. Neither the Criquet nor the Gamhouria... although I have to admit that a portion of the museum was not accessible for visitors.

                  Now I have been there again this week - the inside is not open for visitors but in the open exhibition outside were the above mentioned aircraft plus this one in the photo below. Would anybody know what type t is?

                      Oh - thanks for that. I had originally thought that it would be "soemthing of German origin"... ok, the grandfather of this aircraft was the Klemm Kl-35.
