That year Thailand sent three army officers to France to train as pilots. On completion of their training, the pilots were authorised to purchase eight aircraft, four Breguets and four Nieuports. These aircraft formed the basis of the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF).

Can you imagine all the complaints that would have been posted for this had there been a TVF back in those days? 🤣

The person in charge of finding a location for a new airfield was looking for a suitable place high in elevation to avoid the annual flooding in the whole area so planes could operate safely. The only suitable ground was at what would soon become DMIA.

 

Suitable ground, hmm?.

Except for the 2009 flood, the airport is usually usable and not flooded, I did enjoy landing there, but it was still

over an hours by taxi to get to Nana Hotel.  Ahh  the good ol days.
