The tech.museum of Berlin contents big exhibitions of railrod; sailing vehicles and aircrafts. A planche-display about the impressing story of the airlift during the Russian blockade of Berlin in the late 40's, is presented on a bridge transversing the entire aircraft-display - beautifull reensembluing an 'airbridge'!

The mainbuilding of the museum lies on a street-corner and above a terrace on the 3rd floor hangs(!) a DC-3 as a symbol of the tech. as well as the airlift.

Concentrate or zoom-in on the end of the tree-flanked street to see it here!

As its actual is rather few photos I've taken I'll start hard with the remarkable JUMO Diesel(!) aircraft engine:

It's by two stroke principe and the remarkable design lies in two cranckshafts with a ray of six cylinders in between - Causing the pistons to oppose each other and compress/combust when closest in the middle of the cylinder :-o

As valveless two-stroke, the inlet ports (exposed by the piston when 'in bottom') is situated in the one end of the cylinder, and the likely exhaust-ports in the other end making the flow of the inlets fresh air (as well as the transport of exhaust-gasses) easier to controll.

Try understand the principe at the cut-away picture.

The engine was actual rather popular - as it was used in post-war Soviet tanks as well as in the British Chieftain-tank.

Another from the airlift display-bridge: The tail of the 109 to the left (remarkably for a German exhibit: Including the swastika!).

In the middle the Messerschmitt Me109 and B├╝cker-181 liaison and trainer -planes - I'll leave it to You to decide wich is wich.

To see at the right: The backlighted airlift planche-display along the handrail (wich i situated on both sides of the bridge).

The two liaison planes from underneath. The decals reminds me of it might be a French Devotine and not a German, hence I might be wrong on the both on the earlier picture :-/

In the far behind: A MIG-15 and to the left the airlift display-bridge.

The Henschel 293 guided gliding bomb aimed for naval targets (the thing was so secret that the germans didn't dare to use it for ground targets in case of one getting lost).

It was used i several occations in the Mediterranian but lost its significance as the allied became dominant in the airwar. However, it is thought that one single was used against a destroyer at D-day.

Mrs. Armand on the 'DC-3 terrace'.

The plane and the wiew is clear to see mirrored in the background.

If I don't stumble over other pictures from another visit, this will be all!
