Air Force ready for Children’s Day air shows

The Royal Thai Air Force will continue to organize air shows at several airbases across the country on the National Children’s Day this Saturday (Jan 13) and will put emphasis on safety measure to avoid a repeat of last year’s air accident when a Swedish-made Gripen aircraft crashed, killing its pilot in Hat Yai.

 

RTAF spokesman Air Vice Marshal Pongsak Semachai said Thursday (Jan 11) that pilots participating in the air shows had been training with F16 fighter planes for the air show to be demonstrated at the Air Wing 6 of Don Mueang airport on Saturday.

 

The F16 fighters will exhibit air combat and air attack, he said, adding that the AU-23 aircraft will demonstrate coloured smoke whereas EC-725 helicopters and Gripen jets will display flypast.

 

AVM Pongsak said all the pilots participating in the air shows are 100 percent fit for their task, but they had been told to use their judgement to stop the shows if they find the weather conditions not good enough.

I have a pessimistic feeling about this.

Was this last year, or is it a new one?

 

You think they have a crash every year as part of the show?

For next year I propose to accidentially sink the aircraft carrier and move all admirals to inactive post .

 

Assuming ship is still afloat as we are speaking of course .

It was intended to carry Harriers, but they are so old the RTN can no longer get parts to keep them flying. Harriers went out of production 14 years ago.

I'm hoping that this would not be the case.

 

But, per the OP:

 

I have a pessimistic feeling about this.
