The museum at Beauvechain airbase is a must-see for military and
aviation history enthusiasts!
The 1 Wing Historical Centre (1WHC) retraces the aerodrome's history
from the 1930s to today. Aircraft, engines (also
instructional ones), vehicles, uniforms and a host of historical
artefacts from this period.
The premises is especially significant because it is the old De
Waersegger farm, occupied and converted by the Germans in 1940, then by
the allies in October 1944, and finally by the Belgian Air force in
1946. The museum has been on these premises since 1988 and is therefore
celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
