A unique experience for an enthusiast of aviation in India would be to pay a visit to the Indian Air Force Museum at Palam, Delhi. The IAF Museum offers an insight not only into the history of the Indian Air Force but a complete picture of Military aviation in India. Starting from the initial days when Indian aviators flew for the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War, right up to the days of the Kargil Operations. The visitor is regaled with pictures, mementoes, souvenirs, models, and the actual aircraft themselves.


The Museum consists of an Indoor Gallery comprising of the pictorial history of the Indian Air Force, also holding showcases of memorabilia, uniforms, personal weapons etc of different periods. An adjoining hangar gives the visitor the delight of looking at the actual aircraft of different periods. Not only aircraft but also equipment like Ordnance, Anti Aircraft Guns, Vehicles and other assorted items. Some aircraft which are too large to be accommodated in the hangar are displayed on the apron outside. The Outdoor Gallery also offers War trophies, Radar Equipment and Captured Enemy Vehicles.
