That wall is nice to see. When they originally painted the Kings artwork all along Uppalisan Road I got really excited, as I owned Peppers at the time and was sick of looking out at that dirty brown wall for 15 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Everyday they got closer and closer and then they stopped - just shy of the shop! They said it was so the pilots would not get distracted (as the runway is immediately opposite and also the end that 90% of flights land).

Anyway, nice to see that finally is getting something done because if a pilot is distracted by a painted wall then they are in the wrong job.

The airport has metered taxis now. http://guideubon.com/news/view.php?t=44&s_id=17&d_id=16 Sent from my iPhone using ThaiVisa app

Any further and we will have to get a Lao visa to do our 90 day reports.

Heard in BKK they are now using BMW ‘pursuit cars’! Gawd knows what training the drivers get!!!! Sounds like a recipe for disaster, to me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

As another Peppers owner..hi chaps, I was told by an officer on the base the reason why the last section of the wall was not painted was because it was not appropriate for aircraft to fly directly over the Kings image hence it was white. I assume they are painting it out white again in preparation for new artwork. Hope so as it was nice to see.

Both versions ( flying over kings head and distraction ) are very....hmmm, can't think of a politically correct word for this right now ;)

The wall throws off a lot of glare now. I spoke with the main guy in charge yesterday and he said that it will stay white....no more paintings etc. Lets see what happens and how long it stays white.

I think we just have to sort of accept that what they do here is never something we would do or at least we would not give out the excuse that are given.

We = guys with white faces= I don't speak for everyone ...just assuming.

Thats good news :).

I have noticed that diagonally across of Home Pro / Central Plaza on the side of the Ratchathani University is something big going on. There were a few diggers ( I think that would be the english word for them ) and trucks transporting dirt. Anybody know anything? :)

Across the Provincial Electricity Authority Region 2 ( see attached map )

I assume your talking about the hotel south of Central Plaza...which seems to be almost finished. The spot I'm talking about is at the very beginning stage. Could me another big mall? Or maybe another giant Hardware store...we don't have enough here yet :)

I was wondering about that too. Pretty big project.

I heard from a local that's it's to be a huge (International standard) hospital with Heli-pad.

That would be nice...maybe the Bangkok Hospital?

Been wondering about that one too. At first I thought they were working on implementing a sewer system ( they have some fairly large pipes laying around there ), since that area is prone to flooding. However, they have also been working on the land as well. Foodland or something like that maybe? smile.png Would be nice.

Edit:

Would be nice to get this Thread pinned.
