Bangkok International Airport, 14th & 16th Jan'06

Sat 14th Jan was "Childrens Day" in Thailand. This meant that the military side of the airport was open, with access close to the shorter runway, mainly used for landings, The problem was FOG....! We weren't able to see anything hardly before 0900, but then it was a great day out. Thanks to "Knot & Prompong" in BKK for all of their help & info, that enabled me to get there on the right day...! We spent the whole day, 0730-1645, on the ramp. The temperature was 35c, and I was amongst spotters & photographers from Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and of course lots from Thailand, who really make you feel welcome. Here goes with the shots:
