Bankruptcy looms for Dutch Aviodrome museum
Dutch aviation museum Aviodrome, based at Lelystad airport in The Netherlands, is on the brink of collapse. Yesterday the museum filed for bankruptcy protection. It is likely that part of the collection has to be sold. Since the opening of the museum at Lelystad in 2003 after its forced move from Schiphol airport, visitors numbers never reached the predicted 200.000. Both KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Schiphol airport stemmed the losses, but they are no longer willing to do so. A main bulding, a hangar, a former pilot's mess and a full-size replica of the 1928 first Schiphol terminal building were built on the large premises of the museum. This photo of the replica 1928 terminal building was taken through the rear window of Cessna 172 PH-JNP on 8 August 2004 by one of my colleagues.
