Hi folks,

I dont know if this is the correct forum to post this, but we go. This museum is kept by a Foundation run by a big Aviation Company from Brazil (TAM Airlines) and it is located in the city of So Carlos, countryside of the So Paulo State. The museum is currently closed for a complete rebuild of its inner structure and exposition stands.

However I've been there twice in December, 2006 and January, 2007 and I was able to take some pictures.

Hope you enjoy it.

Greetings,

Douglas.

Very nice photos, I wish I could get my car shining like these planes do!
The data volume of this thread is killing my PC though!:shock:

Wow, those are some beautiful planes there. The F4U Corsair is one of my favorites. Thanks for showing us your pictures. I'm with FTG, I'd like to know what they polish the planes with, it would help my old '93 Mazda look better!

Hello Douglas Jr, and welcome :).
Have you any data on the construction number (werknummer) of the Me 109 you show in this post?
I have an old aviation magazine that lists the then surviving Hispano 111/112 Buchons, some of which have been re-worked back to various Bf109 configurations, to represent German aircraft, rather than those the Spanish Airforce employed until the mid 1960's.
In addition, that same magazine lists surviving Avia CS 1109s.
Unfortunately, I also have an old aviation magazine that gives the then surviving Bf/Me 109's and their werknummers.
Thus, I am seeking data to distinguish between a "Spanish Messerschmitt" and a likely German Messerschmitt.

Any data you have, I'd be very grateful to receive, and would reciprocate your kindness with any data I had on aircraft c/n's you may have an interest in.

Kindest regards, Uyraell.
