Central-Finnish Aviation Museum - Tikkakoksi / Finnland
Update: 2019/10/30 by Robert Kysela / CHK6
What would one be doing on an ice cold, snowy winter day in Finland? Well, visiting an aviation museum! Some 175 miles north of Helsinki lays the small village of Tikkakoksi in the centre of the Finnish lake district. There one can find one of the most interesting Scandinavian museums – the Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo – or in English – the Central-Finnish Aviation Museum. Its collection consists mainly of a huge amount of aircraft, which were operated by the Finnish Air Force in its 90 years of history. The ILMAVOIMAT (Air Force) has owned in their long and varied history several types of aircraft from Eastern as well as Western origin, but also from indigenous production. Due to this fact a visit of this museum, which was founded in 1978 is more than recommended.
