Town: in the park over the N237 a Alouette III is preserved. It's the second aircraft operated by the Royal Netherlands Air Force to be preserved outside military installations. Alouette IIIs were operated by the RNLAF from Soesterberg until the base closed and the squadrons were relocated to Gilze-Rijen. The final four 'Bluebirds' were withdrawn from service in December 2015.

NMM: the National Military Museum has a large collection of the Royal Netherlands Army and Air Force material, uniforms etc on display. Part of its aircraft collection is on display in the museum building with a few aircraft in front of or next to the building. All its other aircraft are preserved in the depot and not visible.
