Heinkel Villa in Warnemünde

This villa built in 1880 became famous for being the home of the aircraft designer Ernst Heinkel. One of his designs was the Heinkel He 178, the world’s first turbojet aircraft and jet plane. Today the villa is part of the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research (Leibniz-Institut für Ostseeforschung).

Zeppelin Museum in Meersburg

On my way to Meersburg Castle, I came across this Zeppelin museum located in Meersburg. If one interested in this kind of airships this museum and the Zeppelin museum in Friedrichshafen nearby would be a good combination.

North American B-25J Mitchell

At the display Airpower in Zeltweg I took this photo of a North American B-25J Mitchell. This plane was built in 1945. Today one can see it at the Hangar-7 in Salzburg or while performances of ‘The Flying Bulls’.
