This place was way better than I thought it would be. I was surprised how much stuff they had there and the wonderful work they have done to restore things. It seems they are always adding to their exhibits and displays.

This Museum has a great selection of RNZAF jet aircraft around. The only jet trainer they do not have is a Strikemaster trainer.
