Near the airport of Riga there is a strange museum – only one person takes care of it – Victor Talpa. It seems he likes this work and may tell many stories about the air exhibits.
According to Victor nobody is interested in the museum. But maybe nobody simply knows that it exists?
Hundreds of people 300 m away from the museum wait for their flights, how can it be that no one wants to see the aircrafts?
Someone would tell that all the planes are old and decaying, but does new equipment go to museums?

The museum had been created for 40 years. Officially it has existed since 1997 without any state help. It’s the only one air force museum in the Baltic States and one of the largest in Europe. The collection of Soviet aircrafts is considered to be the biggest outside the CIS.

At the backyard is a lot of interesting stuff: propellers, jets, helicopter gear boxes…
