In December 2002, a trip with the Trans Mongolian Express brought me in Beijing, China. Of course several museum sites were on the program.

China Aviation Museum – Datangshan

First stop was the marvelous China Aviation Museum also known as Datangshan. 281 aircraft were noted on december 4th, 2002. Most of them are pictured below.

Beijing Aviation Museum

Second stop, the Beijing Aviation Museum, Being on the campus grounds of Beijing Aviation University, this one is a little harder to find.

Preserved in the city

This Il.18 operated by CAAC was preserved somewhere in the city of Beijing.

Military Museum

The military museum is the easiest to find, since it’s got its own metro station.
