Visited the TUDM Aircraft Museum at the Sungai Besi Airport, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Last Saturday went to visit the Royal Malaysian Air Force (or TUDM) Museum at the Sungei Besi Air Port complex with the kids. This is my first time there and I was impressed with what I saw.

Below is a picture of an old Wasp helicopter.

A picture of my son next to the plaque commemorating the opening of the museum.

On the grounds of the museum there is a nice garden with a large water feature.

The open air exhibitions are for the larger aircraft.

The "Raja Wali" with reference number "01". The Air Force One of Malaysia, then.

The next executive aircraft.

This is a 4-prop aircraft from the same series (see the 2 previous photos before).

The long serving transport plane, the Caribou.

Interestingly, Malaysia also operated a float plane as part of its inventory.

Malaysia's first jet fighter, (on the left) the F86 Sabre of the 1950s and the A4 Skyhawk (on the right) attack craft of the 1960s.

A Bell helicopter of the 1950s (remember the TV series MESH), an Alouette helicopter and another F86 Sabre.

A man-portable Javelin anti-aircraft missile.

A4 Skyhawk.

MBB 339 advance trainer/ground attack craft.

A STOL craft.

Canadair CL-41G Tutor - trainer, attack plane.

Training craft.

Another old training craft.

A bi-plane as well!

The F5E Freedom Fighter of the 1970s and 1980s.

Modern training crafts.

Eagle pilotless drone craft.

My son.
