    I am confused
    The Thailand air display team has six aircraft in their air display team, yet the photograph shows ten aircraft!
    The aircraft shown have the markings of Italian aircraft ????????

    You are correct Toby, that photo is of the Frecce Tricolori Italian Air Force display team.

    Best hope Thailand open their borders sensibly and soon (not much chance of that). it will be a pretty pathetic air show with six aircraft. Being involved in one of the largest air shows in the world, I move within those circles and their certainly is no mention of one in Thailand at present that I have heard about.

    Takes a lot of commitment and serious money to bring aircraft from around the world to a show such as they are talking of. Thailand is a bit short of both those basic requirements at the moment, along with trust.

    We live in hope.
