We made a special effort to get here as the website indicated that there was a relatively large selection of aircraft to look at. When we got there, there was only 6 aircraft on display, of which only 3 were of interest. I asked where...More

Hi Gadam_13, thanks for your feed back, I'm sorry you were disappointed. Our website does indeed indicate which aircraft are static display and which are operational. Our operational aircraft, a DC-3 and two DC-4s, are operated by Skyclass Aviation based at Rand Airport. The general...More

We're a volunteer organisation and try our best. The museum is a constant work in progress and yes activities for children are in the pipeline. It's a fine balance between restoring newly acquired exhibits, looking after/maintaining our existing exhibits and designing and building new ones....More

Anyone interested in planes will love this open air museum. Many old planes on display. Climb aboard an SAA plane, visit the cockpit, sit in the engine, experience its sheer size. Great for young kids, teens, Scouts, school groups etc

Took my small kids on a Sunday. They loved it. Where else do they get to run up and down the aisle of a 747? Affordable entrance fees and free tours by airplane enthusiasts and former pilots.
