Bevrijdende Vleugels Museum  Best

The museum park originated from a temporary exhibition in 1984, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Operation "Market Garden". This exhibition was a great success and changed, therefore, into a permanent museum which was located in my place of birth Veghel.

 

The museum expanded through the years and therefore it had to move to a larger location, which was found in Best. On Wednesday September 17, 1997 the "Wings of Liberation" Museum Park was re-opened in presence of His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.

 

All though the main theme of the museum is World War II, also a few modern airplanes are present here. So besides the two Dakotas and F-104 Starfighter can be found and a former Hungarian Air Force MiG-21 Fishbed. I visited the museum quite a few times when it was located in Veghel. Since it moved to Best I've been a few times. Below you'll find some pictures taken during my latest visit.  (Click for an inventory list)
