This museum has everything an air force museum needs. It has plenty of jets on stands, displays, and a lot of phantom jets, which are still being used by Turkey. Its a good visit for kids and plane curious tourists.

Where to start? Like two earlier reviewers, I visited on a religious holiday and in the rain. Neither affected my visit, though blue skies for the photos would have been good. The aircraft are superb and well preserved, hence the four star review. Yes, they...More
