VCome to visit - Access map to the Collection
Neither the Concorde nor the Airbus A300 have ever been part of our collection. They have never been and are not opened for visits through our tours.
As the Super Guppy is in Aeroscopia, it is not anymore opened for visit in our collection
However, the Caravelleis came back in the collection at the beginning of 2015 and is part again of the "can be opened" aircrafts.
It is in our Shop you will be welcomed by our Volunteers. You will also find some gift to remember your visit.
