It appears that after the renovation of the museum some aircraft have been deemed surplus to requirements and have then collected together to form a sort of dump. These aircraft may not have a long term future but for now they make for interesting photos though!

This marvellous aircraft, a licence built Ilyushin Il-10, is seen in the Polish Aviation Museum. The centre boss of the propellor has a strange appendage that may have been used for external engine starting using a geared motor linked to this boss
Atmospheric scene in a storage area that looks more like an abandoned battlefield. Over 6,000 of this development of the Il-2 were built, with China importing 254 between 1950 and 1952 and used by assault aviation divisions of PLAAF, including combat during conflict with Taiwan over border islands in January 1955. The last Il-10s were not retired until 1972. Behind is a Nanchang CJ-5 (Yak-18) and three Y-5s (An-2)
This aircraft is one of ten on open air display at the Polish Military Museum, Muzeum Wojska Polskiego, close to the centre of Warsaw. It looks to be in a poor state of repair. The Avia B-33 was a licence built Ilyushin Il-10
The Il-10 attack aircraft saw action in the closing stages of World War II and in Korea. The improved Il-10M did not appear until around 1950. This particular aircraft tested an auxiliary rocket engine in its tail to improve performance, but this was not proceeded with and the Il-10M was used only for training purposes.
