Located on the main operational base of the Swiss F/A-18s, the *Clin d'Ailes* Military Aviation Museum presents military aeronautics of the second half of the 20th century.

From the Vampire to the Mirage III, the Venom and the Hunter, so many beautiful and powerful machines express, in the heart of the Aviation Museum, the rapid progress made in aerodynamics, materials used and weapon systems.

On the ground or in the gallery, the Clin d'ailes Museum presents the history of Swiss military aviation and the Swiss Air Force, in particular through films, models and exhibitions. The jet exhibition, a unique curiosity, as well as two flight simulators add even more spice to the visit.
The proximity to the aerodrome's runways allows visitors to follow the engagements of military aircraft from the museum's terrace.
