'Airside' view of the 1936 terminal building, restored to its original state after use by the military ended in 2005. Despite this building plus adjacent hangars and control tower enjoying monument protection, forces are at work to turn more of the complex into an event location, like outside the view on the left. On the positive side, F27 D-AELM has been brought here in 2021 for preservation.

Luftrettungsstation Würselen, as the ADAC Luftrettung designates it, was the first to receive a "Christoph Europa" name for its helicopter, underlining the service's cross-border operability. D-HXAD is at least the third machine with the shown name and wears additional titles of the regional emergency services, StädteRegion Aachen Rettungsdienst, on the door. It sits on its home base trailer here, with engines running.

With A319/A320 being the standard type on RJ151/152, the appearance of a 787 on the same flight now and then is a welcome change. Departing here from 18L two hours late. Interestingly, arrival in Amman seems to always be on time as the scheduled time for that appears to be changed according to the actual departure...

Lifting off from runway 24 and sporting the XL Oversize logo and titles, the product being marketed as 'abcXL'. This was the last full day in which Dutch airspace was open to Russian flights, in the early stages of Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

The Flaming seems to have been a good design at the wrong time and never entered production. It was to be a successor to the Wilga but lacked support and the Wilga 2000 was developed instead. The museum keeps both flying prototypes in its collection, this one without the Lycoming engine that gave it the L designation.

Off the production line as a GR1 model in September 1971 and later converted into a GR1A and GR3. Damaged by small arms fire in the Falklands in June 1982 and repaired in the UK. Instructional airframe in Shrivenham from 1999 to 2006 and to this museum in June of that year. Hopefully it may enjoy a repaint some time.
