Though not well known to many, particularly tourists, Chiang Mai is home to a vintage aircraft museum. Tango Squadron Wing 41 maintains the museum located at the Chiang Mai Airport. Sight seeing rides aboard one of the museum's Piper J-3 Cubs or Cessna O-1 Bird Dogs are available. For those wishing to visit the museum advanced notification is required since the museum is located in the part of the airport used by the Royal Thai Air Force. A group of four or more is also a requirement. Sightseeing rides are available to single individuals. Prior reservations are required. While there is no charge to visit the museum, donations are accepted and will be used by Tango Squadron Wing 41 to maintain and improve the exhibits. To make arrangements to visit the museum or to take a sightseeing flight contact Squadron Leader Weerachat Palee. Phone 081 028 4663. Click on the photos to view a larger image.
