Royal Malaysian Air Forces Museum

The Royal Malaysian Air Forces Museum was officially opened to the public on the 2 Jun 85 -- coinciding with the 27th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Malaysian Air Force -- by the Chief of Armed Forces Staff, Gen Tan Sri Ghazali bin Dato Mohd Seth.

It was a simple beginning for the Museum at the Sungai Besi Air Force Base. The inventory then consisted of only five aircraft as exhibits.

For two years the Musuem occupied half a hangar belonging to No 2 Sqn. So when the new base at Subang became operational in 1987, many units moved to Subang.

The Museum quickly laid claims to the Engineering Support Unit hangar next door and the building complex next to it, which used to accommodate the Heli FTS.  

With such "luxurious" facilities, the Museum started its acquisition plan to bring back to the Air Force aircraft that were phased out since the early 1960s.

Only one aircraft, the Handley Page Herald 401 is yet to be acquired. Sadly, the Museum's effort to acquire A Herald from Channel Express (Air Services) Ltd who phased out their Herald fleet in 1999 was not successful. To date the Museum's collection consist of 17 aircraft.

The Museum has many exhibits and is beginning to run out of space. So most of the larger aircraft are parked outside in the open while the smaller and delicate ones occupy its only hangar. Two of the oldest aircraft from the early years before the formation of the RMAF are also being exhibited.

Currently, 18 aircraft are on display in the hangar and the Museum compound. Two of them, the Alouette III helicopter and the DHC-4 Caribou, however, are still in RMAF service.
