Claude Dornier's place in the ranks of aviation greats is secure.
The aircraft produced under the Dornier name over the decades range from the Zeppelin airship and flying boats like the RS I (the first all-metal flying boat) and the twelve-engine Do X (the world's largest passenger aircraft at the time) to the vertical take-off and landing jet Do 31 and unmanned hovering platforms. This impressive list includes many milestones in the history of flight that have taken humankind to new heights and paved the way for enormous scientific progress.
The exhibition traces Dornier's conquest of the skies and features striking exhibits such as a Do 31, a Do 29, a Do 228, a Do 27, a Fiat G 91, a Br 1150 Breguet Atlantic, the Merkur and an Alpha Jet. You can get a close-up look at all the planes – many of which are still airworthy – in the museum hangar.
