entrance fee, what type of a/c, will it be possible to see the stored f-16's, etc.

tia
The types of aircraft you get to see differs every time I think. I was there last year and I liked it. You can see some pictures on my website http://www.marienhoutman.nl/Soesterberg ... index.html

Edit: do not expect to see stored F-16's that still belong to the airforce, you will only see the a/c that belong to the museum. Last year we saw 1 F-16.

What about the Atlantique, is it possible to photograph it? And might we see some Cougars/Chinooks inside the hangars?
Thanks.

CU Saturday.

Most likely yes.

I don't think so as the depots are at an other part of the base.

You have to realise that the museum is not the airforce, therefore they can't open any military hangars and stuff. They only show their own aircraft that they store on the base. Last year it was prohibited to photograph any base objects. It was only allowed to make pictures towards and in the hangars that belonged to the museum.
If I remember correctly, photographing the Atlantique also depends on the willingness of the busdriver / guide and the time-scheme. Not all the busses stopped at the Atlantique. I'm not really sure but that's what I remember.

What I remember is a lot (5) F-104's, NF-5's, Gloster Meteors
Hunters, F-16's, 1 F-84F, and a single RF-84F, and a Catalina.
That's all!

12.00 of 12.30 geloof ik.

Edit: 12.00 volgens de officiele PDF

The official website says:
In de werkcentra wordt gewerkt aan de bouw van een vleugel van de Fokker C-X, één van de boegbeelden van de Nederlandse Militaire Luchtvaart aan de vooravond van de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Dit project wordt in samenwerking met de Stichting Vrienden van het Militaire Luchtvaart Museum uitgevoerd. De Fokker C-X wordt vervaardigd naar authentiek voorbeeld en met dezelfde technieken als die in de jaren ‘30 werden toegepast.
Tevens staat de restauratie van de Lockheed L-12A centraal, een klein transporttoestel dat tijdens de oorlogsjaren 1940-1945 onder meer werd gebruikt bij de Nederlandse vliegopleiding in Jackson, Verenigde Staten. Op dit moment werken medewerkers van het museum aan de vleugels van de Lockheed, maar ook de in 2006 afgeronde romp van het toestel zal te zien zijn. Tevens staat een van de gerestaureerde motoren opgesteld. Bezoekers krijgen tijdens het Nationaal Museumweekend de kans om een kijkje te nemen in de cabine en cockpit van dit legendarische toestel.
In english in short: you can see the building of a Fokker C-X wing, the restauration of a Lockheed L-12A and you can take a look in the L-12A cockpit.

Last year the bus departed from a spot in front of the museum halls, next to the sabres.
