  • Loved this museum. But maintenance of old aircrafts could have been better, as many of them are getting rust. Museum collection includes planes and helicopters used in military training, combat fighting, utility and agriculture. Very good place for aeroplane enthusiasts.
  • Planes, planes, planes. If you want to see planes, this is great. If planes don't... why are you here. Come for the planes, stay fir the planes. There are a LOT OF PLANES HERE! Nuff said.
