Take Off at The Museum of Aviation


With almost 100 planes and helicopters dating back from WWII, the Museum of Aviation is a great destination for lomographers and aviation enthusiast alike.

With almost 100 planes and helicopters the Museum of Aviation is a great place anyone interested in aviation (my father) or lomography. (me) The planes span aircraft history dating back to WWII to the jet age. Located just outside of Macon, Georgia, the planes are spread out in a massive park and has a pretty amazing atmosphere. The museum is staffed by very helpful volunteers, namely air force veterans who actually flew some the aircraft. They will be more than happy to provide a memorable story to accompany your shots.

Personally, I feel that the retro nose art on some of the planes, ranging from pin-up girls to tigers, is one of the real highlights of the museum. The museum also has many aircraft from both sides of the cold war, so you can take shots of Russian made aircraft with your Russian made cameras! You might wonder which Georgia you are in!
Lomographers making a trip to the museum are advised to take a wide-angle lens or a horizon camera, as the wingspan of some of the planes are quite astounding!
