Yesterday, while my captain and I was waiting for my plane at Phitsanulok Airport, a foreigner approached us with questions about flying private aircrafts in Thailand.

He told us that he's moving from England to Thailand. And in September he'd ship his airplane, a De Havilland Tiger Moth, dated back in World War II, to Bangkok. Then he'd assemble it and fly from Bangkok to Phitsanulok. He loved flying and that plane so much that he just couldn't leave it behind.

Though not very easy to fly a private aircraft in Thai airspace, but it's not too difficult to do. However, I wonder if he could get all the paperworks done.

Unfortunately it was such a short conversation that I didn't have an opportunity to ask for his contact address. I'd love to see his Tiger Moth flying here in Thailand!
