Here are many planes, bits and pieces that do not exist anywhere else in the world. Most planes are restored in "original" condition, rather than new like. We had an awesome guide.....

If you happen to have a rainy this is a nice olace to visit. Big hall with lots of planes. The only down side is that the museum is quite far from the city (about 20 km).
