This is an exceptional opening and spaces are limited! As part of the 36th edition of the European Heritage Days, the Aeronautical Museum at the 709 Cognac-Châteaubernard “Commandant Ménard” air base is opening its doors to the public. Comprising four rooms, of which three house airplanes (North American T6, CM170 Fouga-Magister and TB30 Epsilon), the museum will also be hosting three special displays for the event: a model maker will be showcasing the different airplanes of aerobatic display teams from around the world, a collector will be showcasing exhibits that belonged to the base in 1939-1944, and there will be an exhibition presenting vintage military vehicles.
More military vehicles dating from World War II will also be part of an outdoor exhibit.
