  • The aircraft collection and impressive but neglected and need upgrading, migrating several hours of explanations, soldiering and good and very positive. Some of the views are closed (the area) and some dirty and useless rundown advanced means like authentic films of dogfights, aerial photographs of aircraft and Simulator (even just basic)-the gap between the technological capability of the air force to use it not just Museum "cries out to heaven."

  • A first military museum, presents the history of Israel and the aircraft and weapons used in all conflicts. The acquis is very Rico, Mirage, Kfir, F-4, F-16, F-15, Lavi, A-4, 707, plus numerous transport aircraft, helicopters and a few MIGs delivered by deserters. The aircraft are not in very good condition, because need painting, the air force must prioritize active aviation. Although far from the tourist centers, it's a rewarding visit, has ample parking and free, small cafeteria, clean bathrooms and a tiny souvenir shop. During the visit we take-offs and landings of aircraft F-16 close air base.
