Nowadays the variety is somewhat limited, but in the past aircraft-spotters had the opportunity to see far more different (military) aircraft types flying by and in greater numbers. Especially lucky for us ,however, belonging to the older generation, many of these still can be seen namely in aircraft museums, as gate-guards at airbases, as eyecatchers, static displays, wrecks, etc. etc.
In this album we try to bring together images of the preserved past.
The Royal Netherlands Air Force Museum (MLM) was established at Soesterberg Air Base in 1968 and moved to a location nearby the village of Soesterberg , called Kamp van Zeist , in 1980 . In this gallery Hans and Frank show you a selection of photographs they made there in the course of time , representing its interesting collection of military aircraft. Dating back to the years 2011 to 2013 also a number of pictures are included , taken in the shelter area of Camp New Amsterdam and in the new housing of the museum at the former air base .
In December 2014 a magnificent , new National Military Museum (NMM) has been opened to the public at the former Air Base . more than worth while visiting !
