Ground to air missiles

The National Airforce Museum * Outside

Also outside are the air defense systems. Rocketsystems that can track, follow and disable airplanes that are in the wrong territory and don't respond to warnings.

Grandpa explaining Ilja everything about planes

The National Airforce Museum - Outside

Outdoors the larger planes are waiting for you - as well as a wonderful collection of jetfighters. There's even a Russian MIG present on the field, which was of course a wonderful surprise for our father in law that visitied The Netherlands recently and saw that what interests him most: airforces.

Jet turbine - completely explaned in hangar 3 - Soesterberg

Jet turbine - completely explaned in hangar 3

The National Airforce Museum - Hangar 3

In Hangar 3 the children (as well as adults that prefer to stay curious) are in for a treat. Here one explanes everything in details about airplanes. How do wings lift an airplane and what does a jet-engine actualy do? Questions that will be answered in a very clear way. Furthermore one will see how a chair shoots out of an jetplane and one can actually make a flight in a simulator.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Earlt jetplanes used by the Dutch airforce - Soesterberg

Earlt jetplanes used by the Dutch airforce

The National Airforce Museum - Hangar 2

In Hangar 2 there is a collection of more modern airplanes, especially the attention towards jet-engine driven machines. The first Dutch jet-plane was a Gloster Meteor, just after the second worldwar the NL airforce obtained a handfull of them. Now-a-days they are flying with F-16's and add to the NATO airforce all over the world.
