Stand 301

Stand 301

I just went to the new Bangkok airport, Suvarnabhumi Airport. There were aircraft taxi trials going on during the past few months. Participants were pilots from Thai Airways (TG), Bangkok Airways (PG), and air force (RTAF), air traffic controllers (ATC), and airport staffs (AOT).

The purpose of the trial is to familiarize staffs concerned, mainly ATC and AOT, with the new procedure at this new airport, opening at the end of September. Fire department trucks (pick-ups) were used as aircrafts, and we just drove around as if we were taxiing aircrafts.

The trial went OK. However, I couldn't take many pictures because it's at night. Wish I had the day trial.
