This F.1 was built ny Clayton and Shuttleworth in Lincoln and is one of only 5 original examples that have survived. From March 30, 1918, it entered into service and desroyed a total of 11 enemy planes (making it possibly the highest scoring WWI plane still extant). In September, 1918, it was forced down intact behind German lines and captured. The plane then became part of Hermann Göring's pre-WWII collection that formed the Deutsche Luftfahrtsammlung (German Collection of Aircraft). These were evacuated east in 1943 to avoid Allied bombing and eventually became part of this wonderful museum.

This CL.II is the only surviving example and was the personal aeroplane during WWI of the commander-in-chief of the Imperial German Air Service Kommandierender General Ernst von Hoeppner. It then became part of Hermann Göring's pre-WWII collection that formed the Deutsche Luftfahrtsammlung (German Collections of Aircraft). After several pieces were lost during a bombing attack in 1943, the remainder were crudely cut up, packed onto wagons and tranported east for safekeeping. In 1945 the remnants were discovered in very poor condition near the village of Kuźnica Czarnkowska by the Polish Army.

During 1959 and 1960 PZL-Mielec built 129 MiG-17PF as Lim-5Ps, which were fitted with RP-1 radars, but by the late 1960s these were no longer combat capable as interceptor fighters. In 1971 some were converted to attack aircraft by installing additional weapon provisions and replacing the radar with a battery. These aircraft were designated Lim-6M and the reconnaisance version was the Lim-6MR. This example of the latter is pictured at this super museum.

This is an amateur, homebuilt aircarft that was used to escape from Poland during the Cold War. In September 1971 the pilot took off from Krosno in SE Poland and landed in Subotica, Yugoslavia. After a few months in prison the pilot managed to reach Sweden and then Germany. After the end of the Cold War and lifting of the Berlin Wall the plane was restored to flying condition. On the 13th September 2005, the 34th anniversary of his fateful flight, the pilot donated the plane to this wonderful museum.

The MD-12 is a Polish four-engined short-range passenger and civil utility aircraft of the 1960s intended for LOT's domestic routes. The plane evaluated well but did not enter production as the small number of planes required resulted in vastly increased costs. Instead this aerial photography version with a glazed nose and increased wing span was built and is now on display at this super museum having been recently repainted.

During 1948 to 1949 a total of 430 Yak-17s were produced. From 1951 to 1953 11 of the type were delivered to Poland and used to convert pilots from Yak-9s to jet-powered Yak-23s and to train new pilots. This particular Yak-17 flew with the Polish AF with serial 4 but was transferred in 1953 to the Instytut Lotnictwa (Institute of Aviation, hence IL on the nose), registered SP-GLM and used to prepare test pilots for flight testing of the new TS-11 Iskra, then under development. After the final flight in 1960 it was transferred to the museum.

During 1948 to 1949 a total of 430 Yak-17s were produced. From 1951 to 1953 11 of the type were delivered to Poland and used to convert pilots from Yak-9s to jet-powered Yak-23s and to train new pilots. This particular Yak-17 flew with the Polish AF with serial 4 but was transferred in 1953 to the Instytut Lotnictwa (Institute of Aviation, hence IL on the nose), registered SP-GLM and used to prepare test pilots for flight testing of the new TS-11 Iskra, then under development. After the final flight in 1960 it was transferred to the museum.

This UC-78 was TOC by the USAAF as 43-31827 but crashed due to engine failure at Upper Heyford in 1944. After the end of the war Poland bought 21 surplus Bobcats, of which 14 were returned to service, including this example by PZL at Mielec, and the rest used for spares. This plane went on to fly for LOT as SP-GEM and then in 1952 for the Instytut Lotnictwa (Institute of Aviation) as SP-GLC. After decommissioning in 1967, SP-GLC was handed over to the Muzeum Lotnictwa Polskiego and is on display in its Instytut Lotnictwa colour scheme.

This is the only example built of the Żuraw (Crane), a Polish utility and liaison aircraft that first flew in May 1951 but did not enter production. The lack of a sufficiently powerful engine and the fact that the airframe weight was 160 kg heavier than expected meant performance was poor. The plane was shelved because Poland bought a licence to produce the superior Yak-12 and the Żuraw proved to be the last design by LWD. This prototype was operated for a time by the Instytut Lotnictwa (Institute of Aviation) but withdrawn in 1960 and passed on to the museum in 1963.

The RWD-21 is a two-seat, cantilever low-wing wooded touring aircraft that was intended to be simple, cheap and easy to fly. This is the prototype and first flew in February 1939. At the outbreak of WWII five aircraft had been completed. In September 1939 this plane and SP-BRH were flown to Romania where they survived the war. In Romania SP-BRE was re-registered and flown as YR-VEN but returned in 1948 to Poland and became SP-AKG with the Warsaw Aeroklub. It joined this super museum in 1963 and was subsequently restored to its pre-WWII colour scheme and registration.

The Flaming (Flamingo) is a Polish STOL intended as a successor to the successful utility aircraft PZL-104 Wilga. This is the first prototype and was first flown in November 1989. A second prototype was flown in July 1991 (SP-PRD), also on display at the Muzeum Lotnictwa Polskiego. However, problems with funding at the outbreak of the 1980s and 1990s and the political upheaval at that time, coupled with the wish to prioritise the PZL-130 Orlik trainer program caused the Flaming program to be suspended.
