Experience aviation history at Arlanda
Did you know that there is a collection of aviation history from the last century in the Arlanda area?
In a building resembling a hangar, you can experience the comfort of a plane from the 1930s. Climb also on board and take a trip back in time to the days when aviation was something revolutionary. Everything from advanced home-made models to meticulously restored commercial aviation equipment is presented in the exhibition through a dozen aircraft engines and a number of flight simulators.
"Even though the main target group is aviation enthusiasts, the general public is more than welcome to discover the interesting history of aviation which can be followed in our collection," says Bertil Boberg, one of the driving forces keeping the collection alive.
"All restorations and displays are done on a voluntary basis with the suppoirt of Swedavia (the State enterprise that runs Sweden's main airports) and the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology, so we don't really have any resources to be open to the public. But since we are still here working on the restorations, we want to make the collection available to anyone who is interested," says Mr Boberg.
Visit the exhibition on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00-15:00, and the first Saturday of every month that is not a holiday.
