Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Museumvisits: Bucharest, Sofia and Istanbul (26 pics!)

Post by Flygvapnet_Viggen »

While being on holidays I visited a few museums to have some planes in front of my camera. First on was Bucharest's National Military Museum with some 'grounded material'.
As in all museums in Romania/Bulgaria you had to pay for taking photo's and here I even had to pay for each photo I took... Ofcourse I fouled them and payed less than I needed, some pics:

Second on the route was the National Museum of Military History in Sofia.
It was better than the one in Bucharest although it was really hot outside:

This helo I found at the National Museum of History in the outskirts of Sofia:

Last after a roundtour in Bulgaria was Istanbul. A very cool city with a very good Airforce museum, just near the Atatürk Int. Airport.
Actually, along the military side: Yesílköy airbase. Unfortunately, no flying activities of the Turkish Airforce were seen nor caught on camera by me.

While trying to hide from the sun in the shade and from the towerguards I sat down along the road that runs underneath the approach of Atatürk Int.:

And while waiting for our 8h delayed flight from Sabiha Gokcen Airport this fellow made a t&g, unfortunately I didn't get my gear up in time and shot this one with my panasonic:

Later on the day I was caught taking pictures and was commanded to show and even delete all the ones taking at that place... =censored=...
Luckely, there are some programmes that can recover your pics!

I'd rather depict atmosphere and the 'heat of the moment' making a catchy photo than to reflect the real situation and real colours showing a boring photo.

It seems to be some very nice museums although the idea of paying for each photo is just stupid.
Are you not allowed to take pics at the airports in Turkey?
Kind regards
