    It was all so good, a lot of the world has already seen a little boy. Grandpa was also interested in computers, but the grams would perhaps have liked to have seen the airplane meals over the years and the Queens changing clothing for women.

    I can call exhibition impressive. The most memorable thing is real pilot cockpit where everyone can seat and play landing videogame.

    Lots of historical airplanes especially from the Finnish point of view. A great collection, but packed maybe a bit too tight. Also, it would be fabulous to see more planes from the inside. Now only the Convair Metropolitan's cabin is open for visitors. Well worth visiting!
