  • Between aircraft and mockups, you will discover all these birds of iron in all their aspects. And beyond the usual mirages, mysteries, some rare items as one of the two cells of Mirage-G2 - G8, a Saab Viggen, a Mig - 17, or a Skyhawk...

  • A real discovery of the flying machines of the past and the present. The planes are arranged either in hangars, or outdoors. Models of aircraft on display are present in all the hangars and one can see mannequins wearing different outfits of the Army (land, air, etc). A shed is devoted to the different means of communications used by the various military and it is even possible to use a kind of radio-frequency and capture waves from distant countries... Possibility to visit the Interior of a Caravel and take place in a cockpit to take original photos. Entry € 7, CB accepted from €12. Free parking, and very nice. The Museum worth a visit, a little more fun (with audioguide) and this would be perfect! And perhaps you could affix a more concise information because some can be too technical for non initiated :)
