A unique experience for an enthusiast of aviation in India would be to pay a visit to the Indian Air Force Museum at Palam, situated on the outer suburbs of New Delhi.
The Museum consists of an Indoor Gallery comprising of the pictorial history of the Indian Air Force, also holding showcases of memorabilia, uniforms, personal weapons etc of different periods. An adjoining hangar gives the visitor the delight of looking at the actual aircraft of different periods. Not only aircraft but also equipment like Ordnance, Anti Aircraft Guns, Vehicles and other assorted items. Some aircraft too large to be accommodated in the hangar are displayed on the apron outside. The Outdoor Gallery also offers War trophies, Radar Equipment and Captured Enemy Vehicles.
Off limits to the regular visitor is the Vintage Aircraft Flight, which services and strives to maintain some rare examples of aircraft in airworthy conditions. Also off limits to the regular visitor is the Transport Aircraft which due to the lack of hangar space are stationed outside the Museum's limits in the main apron of Palam Air Station itself.
