The Indian Air Force Museum in Palam, has larger planes on display outside the hangar. Aircraft, a number of combat medals, radar technology, and captured enemy vehicles are all on show in this outdoor gallery. The Vintage Aircraft Flight repairs and keeps in airworthy condition a number of unusual aircraft. The general public does not typically have access to this aircraft. Due to a lack of room, large transport aircraft are kept on the airbase’s apron. Only on yearly Air Force Day, October 8, are these planes on display. There is a tiny gift shop inside the museum. Make a note that the museum is closed on government holidays.
