Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present. It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum. Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum. Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum's science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator - like flying for real!

I had a great time looking at all of the aircraft. There is a huge range, from flying boats, all the way to the modern Gripen. I would recommend a visit to anyone who has an interest in aircraft or engineering in general.

A vast collection of airplanes from the beginning of aviation till present time. In the past year the museum has expanded with other stuff than aircraft to please more visitors than air plane geeks.

Linkoping is a little off the normal beaten path, but well worth the time and a visit due to this museum. It is a hidden gem. Though not a big as some air museums, it is still very significant.
