Right next door to Aeroscopia it can be overlooked by the flash appearance of that site. Ailes shows how surplus craft that have already bee canibalised for useful parts can be rehabilitated for static display. Some of the craft are rare and also show how...More

Huge contrast with the neighbouring Aeroscopia, it's a half scrapyard collection, but that gives it the charm. One can visit the repairs and the storage hall, both are treasure spots. Kudos to all the volunteers working here, doing renovation wonders. Many of Aeroscopia planes belong...More

I have to admit that I didn't venture inside the Museum. I was already aware that 95% of the exhibits could be seen from outside the fence. Many aircraft here are nothing more than scrap metal and this is a great pity as there are...More

A stones throw away from the modern, high-tech Aeroscopia, this museum could not be more different. Under-funded volunteers do their best to restore historic aircraft on their love of aircraft, assisted by the 6 Euro entrance fee from visitors. It is normally open between 2...More

This is a must-see open air museum! The collection features many famous airplanes that you can see from up close. You can get a printed guide at the reception with many interesting information about all the planes in there. Worth spending a few hours there....More

+Not well publicised compared with the a350/380 tours but to an aviation enthusiast or some one who just likes to wander around older aircraft then this is the place for you. Photography allowed, no crowds, helpful staff.

Aircraft that are restored here are exhibited in the Aeroscopia museum. The restoration is done entirely by volunteers and the Aeroscopia doesn't contribute anything, even though they get the benefits of the final outcome! I spent the rest of the afternoon here after looking through...More

It's about 13km from the city center, so it's best to plan to spend some time there and visit the Aeroscopia museum too. The best way to arrive is by tram, there is a stop close to the museum.
