The Norwegian Aviation Museum has a dedicated restoration section and its own aircraft workshop. The aircraft are restored in collaboration with enthusiasts from at home and abroad, principally members of Bodø Luftfartshistoriske Forening (Bodø Aviation Historical Society – BLHF), which is one of the Museum’s most important supporters.
Many of the aircraft in the exhibition have been restored and built up by the Museum and BLHF, including a Junkers Ju52, C-5 Polar, VL Sääski, Piper Colt, Fokker F.28 ‘Olav Kyrre’, a Spitfire instrument panel and the cockpit of a Blackburn Skua. There is also a restored MiG 15 UTI in storage, for which there is insufficient exhibition space at present. Much of the restoration of the Focke Wulf Fw 190 was also carried out by the museum and BLHF.
