A place where we can get to know about the various operations the IAF has taken in the north-east. A must visit for aviation buffs, it quite a number of aircraft and aircraft parts on display. It may be the only such museum in the northeast.

Amazing history of almost all the operations our Air force has undertaken in the North east region right from World Wars to 65 and 71 war. It is on way to Elephant falls and a must visit place.

If you are interested for our army and air force related matters, please visit this place. It is located on the way towards Cherrapunji from Shillong. You will get to know lot of things about Indian Air force. Even you can take snaps also. Many models of Aircrafts can be seen here. Overall good experience.

Get to know some of India's great war heros and Indian air force might. A small musuem and id card is mandatory to be allowed inside. Musuem is well maintained and one can spend an hour.

This is not a huge place-just a small museum showcasing the history of the AirForce (Eastern Command); uniforms, medals, lots of photos; the few helicopters/planes/missile launchers outside on the grounds are great fun for children.

A place will inspire patriotism within us when we see the pictures and badges of the Indian Air force as well as the equipment used in Air Force. A Must Visit Place for all.
