I want to learn more about:












Here is an overview of some of the equipment that is a part of the exibition, and is not covered by the other categories;

  • A FlaK-scheinwerfer 34, which is a searchlight with a diameter of 150 centimeter. The power is 16000 Watt, the light is made by an arc between two electrodes. The searchlight has a maximum reach of up to 22 kilometer, while the effective range is approximately 8 km.
  • The generator for this searchlight, is driven by a Mercedes straight-eight, with an enginevolume of 5 liter. The maximum power is 54 hp at 1500 RPM. The generator has a maximum power of 24000 Watt.
  • Both the searchlight and the generator can be moved by means of a Sonderanhanger 102 (Special trailer 102) in each end. This is a set of wheels that can be attached to the searchlight or the generator. It is possible to choose which end that should steer, by putting in the pulling bar and lock it with a locking-bolt, which frees the steering.
  • We also has a smaller searchlight, with a diameter of 60 cm. It has an output power of 5400 Watt, and an effective range of 5 km.
  • The generator for this searchlight can deliver up to 8 kW, and is powered by a 6 sylinder BMW-engine.
  • Both the searchlight and the generator can be moved by means of a Sonderanhanger 51, also known as an "U-trailer" because of the design. This trailer can also be used to move the 20mm Flak 30/38 anti-aircraft canon.

  • The big radar which is loacated just outside hangar 45, is a Wurzburg Riese aircraftradar. The antenna has a diameter of 7,5 meter, and three of these radars where located in our area. One of them was located at Nordberg, while the last two were located at Marka. All the foundations are still remaining on site.
  • A more modern searchlight is also shown in the excibition. This one is American, and was made in the seventies. It has a remotecontrol, where you can control the direction, elevation, focus, and switch it on and off. The diameter is 75 cm. The searchlight is powered by a small generator.
  • We have a big Lister generator, which can supply up to 60 Amps of 3-phase 220 Volt.
  • A big air compressor from Demag, which can be run on gasoline or diesel.
  • We are about to restore a big French-made concrete-mixer. It was used during the construction of the big 2990 meter long runway at Lista airfield.


Up at the messanine which is built inside the hangar, we have the aircraft-department. Here are some examples of what we have on display;

  • A propeller-blade from a Messerschmitt BF109, of which there were many at Lista during WW2.
  • We also have a propeller-blade from a Britich P51 Mustang, which crached into the sea outside Lista in 1944. This aircraft was, a part of the escort of some Beaufighters, but had an enginefailure and crashed. The complete propeller was caught by a trawler some years ago, and we got one of the blades.
  • A britich parachute from 1944.
  • A rescueboat from a Messerschmitt BF110D. These were popular among local fishermen after the war.
  • A model of Lista, built by the Nazis during WW2, is mounted here. The model was used for planning of building and strategical moves. The model was delivered to the local museum by the last of the Nazi-officers, by the end of the war.
  • There is also a model of "Lemmebanen", which was the first airfield at Lista, made of wood, and is made in the scale 1:72. Even in this scale it is 16 meter long. It should even have been 9 meters longer, but this section have been removed because of space. On this airfield there are models of all the 90 aircrafts that were located at Lista, at the liberationday, May 8th 1945. Lista was actually the airfield in Norway with the most aircrafts at this day. There were 36 Messerschmitt BF109, and 36 Focke-Wulf 190 at Lista by the liberation. Unfortunately were all of these aircrafts blown up and burried.
