Aeronautical Museum  Belgrade

Close to the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport you can find the Aeronautical Museum Belgrade. It was founded it 1957 in Surčin and is formerly known as the Yugoslav Aeronautical Museum. The current facility, designed by architect Ivan Štraus, was opened for public in 1989. The construction of the building began in the mid 1970s.


The museum owns over 200 aircraft previously operated by the Yugoslav Air Force and later the Serbian Air Force, as well as aircraft previously flown by several civil airliners and private aero clubs. The most valuable collections are housed in the glass building, with additional aircraft displayed in the museum garden. The historical eyecatchers are the wreckages of a USAF F-117A Nighthawk and a tail of an Aviano based F-16C. Both aircraft were shot down during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999.


Behind the museum a large storage area can be found white lots of old J-20 Kragujs, J-21 Jastrebs, J-22 Oraos and MiG-21s. Unfortunately this part of the museum is off limits for general public, but all aircraft can easily be seen from outside.
