Amazing displays, historic and rare military artifacts. Great staff that inform you of other parts of the facility that are open limited time. This allowed us to view additional aircraft and air defense pieces.

What a super place. Shed loads of interesting displays. The aircraft were superb. Staff ok. A good place to spend a couple of hours browsing. Loads of parking available plus swiss airforce choppers taking off and landing all the time.5

The Air Force Centre's display hangar at Dubendorf airfield contains a good display of historic aircraft. These range from 1930s types to postwar jet planes and include several Swiss designed and built aircraft. The museum is within walking distance of the railway station.
