Default Lyon Air Museum I - Vintage Cars

Not everything in this crowded Air Museum flies. The cars may be for period atmosphere.

Looks like a great place to visit. Spotless.

It is a nice place to visit - the people are helpful and friendly. And it is spotless - too much so - all the reflections and the glare and backlighting from the large hanger windows, plus the cramped conditions, make it difficult to get good exposures of the planes in particular as you will see in later postings..

They do, however, allow flash and tripods, which many museums do not, so if I ever go back, I'll be better prepared.
