Colourized photo from Herdla.
For the interested tourists there is a lot to see at Herdla, they have it all.
You can play golf, have a quick walk to the museum, then stroll around the airfield, a place not to be missed if you are in the Bergen area.

I would like to recommend this museum.
KENT BATTLE OF BRITAIN MUSEUM
http://www.kbobm.org/main.htm
Image
The original Armoury building contains a comprehensive collection of both ground-based and airborne weaponry together with the countries most complete collection of 1940 uniforms, flying equipment and insignia as worn by both sides of the conflict, as well as personal items donated to the Museum by pilots, both British and German who fought in the Battle of Britain.

Image
The Operation Block, from where all air operations were controlled at Hawkinge during the War, is now home to items gleaned from over 600 Battle of Britain aircraft, the majority of which were excavated by the Museum's recovery team in the late 1960's and 1970's or donated by individuals since the foundation of the collection.

Items large and small, ranging from Aero engines to small strips of alloy with identification numbers of the aircraft concerned, they all bear mute witness to the terrible force of their impact with the soil, over sixty years ago.

The Australian War Memorial has a great collection also, including an
Me 262, Me163 and Me 109G6 (the only 109 in existance to retain its original paintwork), as well as a V2 rocket on an original launch trailer, German motorcycles and heaps more. The place was awarded the title of 'best major tourist attraction' in Australia for three consecutive years, and its exhibitions are second to none.
