Last post before year end. Next I hope I can upload the Thai Military Year In Review. ^ ^
F-16 in Children’s Day Air Show in Wing1 Korat.
As an annual weapon operation competition to evaluate the effectiveness of the training of whole year, this year Angel Thunder come back to Nam Pong Gunnery Range in Kon Kaen. But unfortunately, the weather was bad and the size of showing area were limit the aerial display so this year was not as big as last year in Chandy ’07 which the paticipaint had a chance to experience the live-firing live-bombing show from almost all RTAF fighters.
But it’s still worth to see.
Some photo from the ceremony. Thank photographer Mr. Sukasom Hiranphan.

It took a decade to fulfil its dream, but the air force is now set to equip its fleet with an airborne early warning (AEW) plane, although it will be a second-hand one. The first AEW aircraft built by Saab of Sweden will be deployed in 2010, about a year ahead of delivery of the first batch of Gripen C/D jets, according to an air force source.
