Datangshan visit by Paul chandler, Oct.2005

The China Aviation Museum (also called the China Aeronautical Museum) is still often called, as I do too, the Datangshan Air Museum. However, Datangshan is the name of the mountain at the museum, in which the tunnel (hangar) is located and this clarifies the misunderstanding.
Paul Chandler wrote me about his visit to this museum; he made an extensive report and included many photos of the aircraft on display in the tunnel:
I was lucky enough to visit Datangshan in October 05th, 2005 and I agree with John Chapman's comments.
I hope I can be of help here (especially for aircraft in the tunnel) and offer these photos for use on your website;please note that the white fighter type on the first row (coded 0101) is in fact a full size replica, as there are no engine intakes!
There are also a couple of other replicas which are not so obvious (P40 Warhawk for one).
Enjoy,
Paul Chandler
