SHAH ALAM: RMAF museum at Sendayan airbase. The RMAF museum – which had been a permanent fixture at the Kuala Lumpur (Simpang/Sungei) airbase has relocated to the Sendayan airbase in Negri Sembilan. The museum confirmed it was already operating at the airbase – the administrative training facility – of RMAF in its official Facebook page on Sept 23. The move was made on January 21, though it will only be opened to the public at a later date, the post said. So please don’t go there this weekend asking the guard to let you in as you want to visit the museum!
The page also stated that it had started moving the exhibits from its temporary location at the former PDRM air wing base next to the former RMAF base.
The exhibits – historical airplanes retired from service – had been moved to the former PDRM base several years back as the developer of the location started working on the project.
Two of the exhibits moved to Sendayan are an Allouette helicopter and an Eagle training aircraft. Both were mounted on low loaders for their transport to Sendayan on Sept 14.
It is likely all of the exhibits stored at the former PDRM air wing base will be transported to Sendayan as the site will also be redeveloped. It is unclear whether apart from the new office, the new museum will have a hangar to display its exhibits or most of them will be left out in the open, to be at the mercy of the elements unlike most of the other such museums overseas.
