Tour - Thailand

Children’s Day – January 2019


In 2019 we will go to Thailand for the 3rd time for the Children’s Day. On this second Saturday of January, children are put extra in the spotlight. That is interesting for us because many government agencies, including the armed forces, open up their ‘office’. This allows us to visit different Air and Army bases. We will also visit a number of other airports, museums and collections, including the famous Tango squadron on Chiang Mai, to complete the journey. All in all, this gives us a very good impression of the considerable variation of the Thai forces, past and present.

In 2013 and 2018 we also visited this beautiful country.
