PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN, Nov 24 (TNA) — The Royal Thai Air Force marked the 50th anniversary of its Peacemaker fleet which is now the world’s only one remaining fleet of Peacemaker aircraft.

 

ACM Alongkorn Wannarot presided over a ceremony to celebrate the anniversary of the AU-23A or Peacemaker fleet and introduce a project to extend the lifetime of the planes that were deployed at Wing 5 in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

 

The air force chief said the lifespan of Peacemaker aircraft could be prolonged unlike F-5 and F-16 jets which would have to be decommissioned when their structures reached their lifetime.

Great STOL aircraft. Basically a Porter. Not sure if the RTAF ones still have Garrett engine or have been changed to a flavour of the PT-6?

Nowadays, the RTAF uses these for fishing and camping trips.....

they are also useful for spying on the Myanmar rebels just over the hill.....
