Being able to witness the aircrafts of different eras is a honour and an opportunity that we as Aerospace enthusiasts enjoyed and cherish.
A visit to the Museum of Aircrafts at Toulouse kept us highly engaged and excited while we got to see the scaled aircraft models, and the real size models and even got the chance to go inside some of them. The iconic Concorde and the A380 were the highlights of the visit. There was a whole engine and nacelle assembly that was disassembled and kept in the museum. We always talk about the structural weight being a huge challenge in the aviation and hence the different lightweight metals, alloys and composites are being used in the structure. We were able to feel this weight difference across different materials with the samples of materials that were displayed and put for comparison in the museum. Being in the museum made us lose track of our time as we experienced all the aircrafts there.
We truly enjoyed the whole day out there and visits like this is what we always look by being part of the team of EUROAVIA Toulouse!!!
