87-Year-Old Collector Gathered 110 Fighter Jets In His Chateau In France

The Château de Savigny-lès-Beaune, nestled in the rolling hills of Burgundy’s wine country, is the last place you’d expect to find a fighter plane which once had atomic bombs strapped expectantly under its wings.

Michel Pont, who is the world’s biggest private collector of fighter planes with 110 according to the Guinness Book of World Records, inherited the castle in the 1980s and stuffed every corner of his property with his prized possessions. His collection and the abundant size of the property has allowed him to open nine separate museums in the castle, one for each type of vehicle.

Some of the most memorable sites of the museum include a soviet helicopter sitting on the back lawn, a 1970s hovercraft, a warehouse full of vintage firetrucks, 200 antique motorbikes and 36 racing cars.

In 2018, more than 30,000 people visited the chateau.
