The Post in Thailand reports Thailand will stage its first air show to demonstrate the potential to host a fully-fledged international aviation event in the future. The show, scheduled from July 24-26, is also meant to support the government's plan to find new roles for Don Mueang Airport which has been left largely unused since the opening of Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airport in 2006. The free show, open to the public, consists of:
- Static displays of 70 aircraft, mostly corporate jets, light aircraft, helicopters.
- A flying show of 15 light aircraft including the vintage propeller plane Miss Siam.
- A seminar on topics including the future of aviation; becoming professional pilots and cabin attendants; Thailand's open-sky policy and unmanned aircraft technology.
- About 100 exhibition booths at Terminal II by airlines, operators, universities, pilot association and civil aviation institutes.
Sounds great if you're a plane fanatic in Bangkok at the time.
