A modest museum with a glorious lineage. Enthusiast enjoy operating decommissioned anti-aircraft gun turrets and getting into cockpits of former planes.
When I was a kid, I dreamt of having the power of flight. In my head I would soar through the air and glide above waters before heading of to school. Twenty years and quite a few pounds later I’m no Nathan Petrelli. But I did end up living near the airport. I guess that should count for something right? Fine. It’s lame, I know. I’ll shut up now.
The Philippine Aerospace Museum located near the newly opened Air Terminal 3 is shaped like a giant paper airplane. It’s blue glass façade and sharp clean lines invite passers by to take a peek into the short history of flight here in the country. Here you will wind the history of the local Air Force and antiques & paraphernalia used during war time eras. I saw me a couple of swanky looking TLR’s and Motion picture cameras on display at the second floor of this two story building. Enthusiasts and even kids can enjoy operating decommissioned anti-aircraft gun turrets and getting into cockpits of former planes. There’s also a nifty flight simulator that was once used to train pilots that you can try out.
Behind the Museum is a small park where decommissioned aircraft are available to the public. Planes like the P-51 Mustangs, F5’s, T-28 Trojans and a Couple of Sikorsky helicopters dominate the lawn where picnic tables are set up for families and friends who want to watch planes nearby. Tickets cost a little over a dollar, this goes to the maintenance of the building. You can also purchase souvenir items at the museum store or a quick bite you can bring into the picnic area. Relive those days of flight inside your head. Just remember to take extra care when you fall to the ground.

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
