All the aircraft are in three different hangers which makes it difficult to get full on shots so I took the outdoor shots from the museum list.

Netherlands. Soesterberg. National Airforce Museum.
Soesterberg (52°0'N 5°17'E) is a town in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is a part of the municipality of Soest, and lies about 5 km northeast of Zeist, on the road between Amersfoort and Utrecht.
In 2001, the town of Soesterberg had 5,798 inhabitants. The built-up area of the town was 1.31 kmІ, and contained 2503 residences.
In 1910, the heathland north of the village was used as an airfield. From 1954 to 1994 it became a NATO base for the United States Air Force 32nd FS (originally 512th FDS later it became 32nd FD,32nd FIS and 32nd TFS), and the village of Soesterberg housed a number of American families.
Here, on the outskirts of the American base, and is a museum of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. The museum has three hangars with the exhibits.
We are interested in the first hangar, that it contains the aircraft of World War II, photos of which you can see here.
