This 504K (powered by a Sunbeam Dyak) served with the Sønnenfjeldske Flyavdeling at Kjeller from July 1921. The serial 103 had been re-allocated to this Kjeller Flyfabrikk assembled 504K after Avro 504A 103 (ex RFC B4306) had crashed on 1 April 1919.
The Bodø museum has two UH-1Bs on display, with '597' (ex US Army 60-3597) at the main entrance and inside is '079' (US Army 64-14079) in a white overall United Nations scheme, to support their operations in Lebanon in 1978.
This US Army (64-13966) was one of ten UH-1s supplied to Norway in 1966. Initially coded 'JT-B', 966 was in use with RNoAF's 720 Skvadron here at Gardermoen and the unit's detachments at Sola and Ørland.
F-84G-26-RE 51-11209 entered service with the RNoAF on 29 July 1954 and was assigned to 331 Skvadron as 'FN-2' and recoded later as 'FN-G'. In March 1958 the Thunderjet transferred to 338 Skvadron at Ørland as 'MU-5'.
This Tiger Moth II (ex RAF DE840) is in the colours of '127' the first of 17 licence-built DH.82s for the Norwegian Army Air Force in the summer of 1933 (Serials 127 to 159, with only odd numbers used). In 1935 another 21 DH.82As were built at Kjeller.
C-47A-25-DK '93797' (ex USAAF 42-93797) was of ten C-47s delivered to the RNoAF in 1950 for 335 Skvadron as 'AO-T', recoded 'BW-D' in 1951 and finally 'BW-L' in June 1956. The C-47 was used until 1960 for calibration of aviation navaids.
On 15 June 193,1 Kaje I '33' struck the water Rødmosjøen lake in Leksdale, Norway. The pilot survived the crash, but the observer died. After 75 years at the bottom of the lake, the aircraft was raised and later restored.
One of 28 Bird Dogs delivered to the RNoAF, 4953 entered service with the Norwegian Army Field Artillery for observation and FAC-duties in August 1968. The aircraft was modified to O-1G standard in 1976, but the Bird Dog retained the O-1A designation.
On 25 April 1940, during Luftwaffe attacks on No.263 Squadron's base on the frozen Lesjaskogsvatnet, Norway, twelve Gladiators were destroyed or damaged, including 'HE-G' in which F/L Randolph Stuart Mills had been in combat earlier that day.
After some 'cosmetic modifications', such as the fitting of the Browning gun barrels in the nose and the 20mm cannon in the belly, this former RAFM Hendon T.III represents a 333 Squadron FB.VI (coded 'KK-T') after returning home to Norway in June 1945.
After some years indoors, T-37B-CE 57-2247 is now on display next to the Newton Flight Academy building in the aviation museum's car park area. The former 80th FTW aircraft has the ENJJTP (Euro-Nato Joint Jet Pilot Training) badge on the fin.
In 1989, the wreck of 16/141 was recovered by the Bodø Lufthistoriske Forening. On 29 March 1943, the Vajenga (Murmansk)-based machine was shot down by Luftwaffe fighters. Pilot Aleksej I. Tshasonikov force-landed at the Kudalsfjellet near Hamningberg.
Norseman 44-70546 was shipped to Europe in March 1945 for use by the 8th Air Force. In 1947, she transferred to Norway for service with Polar Fly at Narvik, registered LN-PAB. At the time of her crash, the PAB was in service with Wideroes Flyveselskap.
LN-PAB, ex-USAAF 44-70546, crashed on 3 September 1952, when she hit the shore during landing at Lake Gavnevann, in the Finnmark province in northern Norway. The wreckage was salvaged by the Norwegian Aviation Museum, Bodø, in 2002.
