Log Reports from China Aviation Museum

Help solve the mysteries of (previous) identities and construction numbers

Ronald Stevelink's observations are marked as -08Jul04- and his list can be checked at: Ronald's report in a .pdf format.
John Chapman sent me his list in 2004 and this has been integrated in the list below, look for -1996-.
I also received a report for Dec.2003.
Initially I started this list in 3 parts, indicating location inside the museum, but I removed those remarks as the other reports mentioned other locations.

I have also provided links to external sources, for some visual and basic data reference on most of the non-Western produced types. Please email me if/when these links fail.

Heinz Rentmeister sent me these 2 aerial views (dated 04Dec04) of the museum, click on the thumbnails to view the larger images:

Following is some nov.2012 information on 'XT-115' (and 476650) as published on DC-3 and Classic-Propliners forum (Yahoo) by propliner authority Aad van der Voet:
" XT-115 is a C-47, almost certainly a C-47B. But one that was converted by the Soviets post-war.

When the stock of US-supplied Pratt & Whitney engines ran out after the war, the Soviets started to re-engine their C-47Bs with their own ASh-62IR engines. While at it, they made a few other changes to the airframe as well.
A C-47B so converted was named a TS-62...

Apart from the Soviet engines, the most distinctive feature of a TS-62 is the small extra cockpit window which a regular C-47 doesn't have. A Li-2 also has this extra window, but on both sides of the cockpit.
The TS-62 has it on the left side only, and this is the case with XT-115.

There is another TS-62 in the China Aviation Museum (aka Datangshan Museum), and that is the one currently marked as USAAF "476650" (previously marked as China AF "4766", "476", "97042" and "117").
In 2009 or 2010 this aircraft was painted in USAAF markings as "476650", to represent the C-47B which flew Chairman Mao to the Chongqing negotiations on 28-Aug-1945.

Here's a link to all Airliners.net photos of both aircraft:

No identity (c/n or msn) is known for either aircraft.

My photos, in 2002
Back to Datangshan Index page

Michael Prophet made a brochure available to me, a souvenir from his 2012 visit, from which I have scanned the following
two image which may be helpful for a visit:

China Aviation Museum
China Aviation Museum

Grant Newman visited 'Datangshan' in Sep.2017, his photos can be seen on Flickr and here is some additional information by him:
"Some notes to add to updates you might make on the museum.
At present the two indoor halls are closed. The Tunnel has a big banner located at its exit (behind which is the Zimbabwean Canberra), which states that it is closed between 1 August and 15 November 2017.
The main hall had no such advisory note on it.
Outside the hall were parked four Chengdu-F-7s/MiG-21s behind metal fencing. Surrounding the aircraft areas are low cut bushes and wooden fencing, which provide a barrier to getting close to the aircraft; large numbers of uniformed personnel, mainly females wandered about warning people not to cross the barriers. 
There are advisory signs here and there outlining rules for viewing the aircraft.  

Many of the aircraft have received fresh coats of paint and have been cleaned, but the state of the helicopters is regrettable; most of them looking run down, with torn and missing tyres and broken windows.
At the time of my visit, access to the Be-6 was blocked off by a metal barrier, although I did sneak past this undetected to get a better look at it and the Tu-4s.
There was no explanation, but the large swarms of bees around the surrounding fruit trees was a good guess as to why! 

There is a high green fence blocking access to the aircraft dump, although during the first day I went, there were work men digging a ditch in front of some of the aircraft near the fence, which had a section down, so I jumped the ditch and went to look at the derelict aircraft.
The grass is overgrown around most of the aeroplanes, but portions have been mown. My boots got filled with grass clippings by the end of my unsolicited look around.
The next time I went, over a week later, the fence had been repaired, the ditch filled in and there was no access to the dump, but I did see someone jumping the fence, camera in hand!
While in this area I went inside one of the An-2s and noted that it had a hopper in it; I couldn’t see any opening in the belly, so supect the spray bars would have been attached to the wings. The aeroplane in particular had the number ‘9’ visible on its fin; the rest of the fin/rudder uncovered.
There was also a Shenyang J-8I fuselage with its wings removed and its nose ahead of the cockpit at a crazy angle.
There was an unusual An-24 with the number 50954 on its fin, with box like fairings over its windows, which was open. A look inside revealed pax seats. 

The days I went were characterised by good weather and lots of people; both days were packed and the lack of indoor shade meant that the tree lined areas between the helicopter and artillery parks and the airliner areas were constantly occupied by people slouching on benches in the shade."
