Krakow (POL)

The Mirage V BA 'BA-03', before on display at the airport of Temploux-Suarlée (EBNM) is now on display at Krakow. The aircraft is on loan for the new exhibition by the Polish Aviation Museum for the next year anniversary of NATO. In 2009 in the Museum we will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of NATO and 10th Anniversary of Poland’s affiliation with the NATO.

The Mirage was exchanged with the Royal Army Museum/Koninklijk Legermuseum in Brussels for the ex-Polish Air Force helicopter

The Royal Army Museum/Koninklijk Legermuseum as the partner of the project NATO 1949 – 2009 will donate also a Republic F-84 Thunderstreak. It is planned to arrive to Krakow in September 2008.
