Children’s Day is the nationwide event for children on the second Saturday of Janurary. Here is photo from Don Muang where RTAF Children’s DAy airshow was held.
This page will summarize the procurement program conducted in 2008 divided by each branch of armed force.
You would be a bit surprised if you heard that Royal Thai Air Force used to fly the Japanese-made fighter aircraft!
It began during the WWII, when the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) moved into Thailand as a route to enter Burma. Thailand and Japan later signed an alliance treaty and Thailand also declared the war against the allied force.
It’s time to buy Diamond, and RTAF chooses DA42 Twin Star as its new trainer. And French aircraft come back to RTAF again with ATR-72-500.
Second photo set of Operation Angel Thunder ’08. This set is the static display weapon on that day.
We start with Swedish-made RBS-70 Short-range SAM.
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.
