The Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Museum is the museum of the Sri Lanka Air Force, and its predecessor, the Royal Ceylon Air Force and is situated at the SLAF in Rathmalana. Maintained by the Sri Lanka Air Force, this aviation museum displays former aircraft and equipment of the Sri Lanka Air Force and the Royal Ceylon Air Force. The museum is the brainchild of Air Chief Marshal Harry Goonatilake, former Commander of the Air Force. The museum was first established in 1993 and was reopened in 2009 after refurbishment. The museum displays remnants of the Japanese aircraft shot down over Ceylon during World War II and artifacts from the LTTE aircraft shot down during the Suicide Air Raid on Colombo.
