Experience aviation history up close – in our exhibition

 “Flying like a bird” remained an unrealizable dream of mankind for a long time. It was not until 1891 that the inventor Otto Lilienthal succeeded in creating the first documented flight of a human being by developing a glider – “with a flying machine heavier than air. 

Otto Lilienthal was the first of other daring pioneers whose visions and inventiveness made aviation history. In the new exhibition on the history of flight, we report on everything from the first flight attempt to luxury flying in the 1920s to air travel for everyone.

An interesting journey through time about the technical achievements of the past 100 years, documented by many original exhibits. In cooperation with several partners, an informative exhibition on civil aviation history has been created. It can be visited individually by each visitor or experienced through a guided tour arranged in advance.

Exhibition of the German Armed Forces of the Tactical Air Force Squadron 73 “Steinhoff

In addition to the military history collection within Laage Air Base, the exhibition complements the presence of the “Steinhoff” squadron in public. With modern media, a visually attractive presentation and the partly interactive presentation, the visitor is guided through the exhibition and gains an insight into the everyday service life of the soldiers.

The core mission of the “Steinhoff” squadron is to train pilots on the EUROFIGHTER weapon system; this is vividly conveyed in the exhibition. In addition, the squadron ensures combat and alert readiness to secure German airspace and provides worldwide services in areas of operation in connection with NATO or UN missions.

The highlight of the exhibition is the VR simulator. For this, missions actually flown were filmed in almost 360° view and interactively processed. This creates the perception of an authentic situation and one’s own flight control.

Please understand that the simulator is suspended due to corona until further notice.

Explore the exhibition on your own or contact the Bundeswehr. Upon request, Bundeswehr soldiers will moderate through the exhibition for groups of 10 or more, during the following service hours:

Mo – Th09:00 – 16:30
Friday09:00 – 12:00
