Has Anyone Been To The Datangshan Aviation Museum?

Sun Aug 19, 2001 8:40 am

I am very curious about the Datangshan aviation museum, near Beijing, China, which hosts more than 140 aircraft that have played a part in Chinese aviation history.

Searches have turned up very little information - a few photos. Has anyone at Airliners.net visited this museum? What did you see there? Specifically, I am interested in whether the prototype Shanghai Y-10 (B-0002), a Chinese medium-range airliner powered by four P&W JT3D-7 turbofans (purchased as spares for CAAC's 707 fleet), has been preserved at this museum. I would be grateful for any help!

Thanks,
Daniel

I heard this museum also hosts Chairman Mao's private aircraft and that visitors are alowed to tour the aircraft. Does anyone know what kind of plane this was?
