*Video Only* Buran Space Shuttle, Antonov An-22, 747 Museum

Sun Sep 01, 2019 9:21 pm

The Technik Museum Speyer is a technology museum in Speyer, Germany. It houses the only Buran (Soviet Space Shuttle) prototype in the world. The Buran on display is outfitted with 4 exterior turbine engines giving it the look of a space shuttle mixed with an MD80. The Turbine engines were unique to this specific model for 25 controlled atmospheric test flights. During the Buran space program, a single space mission occurred with an unmanned launch with two orbits prior to a runway landing. With the collapse of the USSR, the program lost funding and the Burans never flew again.


The museum also has many unique aircraft and displays. A large Antonov An-22 Russian transporter is on site with full access to visitors. The most visual display is a Boeing 747-200 Lufthansa mounted at a unique angle high up in the air. The 747 also allows visitors full access including to the lower cargo hold and the ability to walk out on the wings several stores up in the air.



The museum is a one of kind experience and highly recommend for aviation fans. The Buran display offers something that can't be viewed anywhere else in the world and the aircraft mounted in the air provides visitors unique views and perspectives.
