The Museum is an impressive memorial to the past with its collection of World War 1 and 2 fighter planes – the first jet engine fighter plane, designed and manufactured by the Germans towards the end of World War 2. It was the first two-seater night fighter, called the ME 262, and the one the museum has is the only existing plane of its kind in the world.
