Established in 2017, the TU 142M Aircraft Museum is located in the eponymous military aircraft of Russian design. This turboprop, anti-submarine warfare aircraft stands in close proximity to the INS Kurusura Submarine Museum on Beach Road. After having served the Indian Navy for thirty years it was decommissioned and converted into a museum and is now maintained by the Government of Andhra Pradesh and the Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority.
Various mechanical equipment and accoutrements make up the displays. This includes engines, propellers, parachutes, anti-submarine missiles, date recorder and sonobuoys. Audio-visual aid is also made accessible to visitors in order to complement their museum viewing experience.
