2020 Tour Programme
THAILAND: Phuket International Airport plus optional extension to Bangkok Airport (227001)
1st - 7th February
Following on from our very successful ‘airliners’ tour to Bangkok and Jakarta in 2019, we return to southeast Asia – to Phuket! As you would expect for one of the world’s most famous and popular tourist destinations, the airport gets busy; in the high season it gets very busy – and that’s when we will go! Something like 60 airlines operate short, medium and long-haul flights to the airport and this is reflected in the number of single and twin-aisle types you will see. Most of the airlines are from Southeast Asia. February is a perfect time to visit as there is very little rain. We stay at a hotel within walking distance of the airport – and the local beach: the perfect place for taking superb photographs. Like the well-known Saint Maarten Airport on the Dutch Antilles in the Caribbean, the aircraft land just a few feet over the sandy beach! You have the opportunity to extend your time in Phuket, or even extend your stay and spend some time at one of the popular ‘spotting’ hotels at Bangkok Airport. This tour is also perfect for those people in your life who have no interest in aviation!
USA: NAS Fallon & Nellis AFB. Red & Green Flags. Including Jedi Transition & Rainbow Canyon (227004)
7th - 14th March
Red Flag Nellis AFB and Top Gun NAS Fallon - always a popular tour. And like those previous, we go to Red Flag-2 which includes participation by foreign air forces in addition to American. As of August 2019 neither the dates nor the participants have been announced but these should be known in the autumn. The current dates are based on the last 3 Red Flag-2s. We have provisional confirmation of our ramp tour at NAS Fallon – another great morning with Zip the PAO. Then we spend 2 days at Rainbow Canyon located along the Jedi Transition LLR – an unforgettable, memorable time. Arriving in Las Vegas we have 2 full days at Red Flag before flying home. Or extend your stay in Las Vegas or the USA. Until the dates are known, please email us registering your interest.
