Hello Unregistered,

Royal Thai Air Force Museum

The Type 10 (Hawk 3), a fighter aircraft, played a significant role during the Indochina War. This is only one of its kind remaining in the world today.

The Royal Thai Air Force museum was set up in 1952 with the purpose of collecting and restoring defense articles of different periods including equipments and aircraft in use during the early period of Thai aviation history up to the present.

The RTAF museum was first located at a hangar west of Don Muang airfield and was not opened to public until 27 March 1959.

The present musem was constructed in 1968 at a total cost of 6,635,000 Bahts. The museum was officially opened to the public on 24 January 1969.

The exhibits at the Royal Thai Air Force museum feature many types of aircraft rarely found anywhere else in the world. Many of them were in service during the war and played a vital role in the safeguarding of our nationís independence.

The numerous victory Medals awarded to the RTAF pilots attest to the bravery and valour of our heroes.

The Royal Thai Air Force has tried to develop its museum to ensure that it has complete historical records of the Royal Thai Air Force.
