Interesting mix of aircraft there.
I found the fabled lost burial grounds of the Fan Trainer.

THERE it is! What is the grey biplane?
If it doesn’t have a plaque and it ain’t ‘Murican, I don’t know what it is. Mostly.
There is a YT Channel, Ed Nash’s Military Matters/Forgotten Aircraft, that has a video on the museum. It is, as mentioned, a replica. That much I remembered. He also has one on the Fan Trainer in Thai service.
 
Walking around the grounds pt II.

Did you guys know the wings of an F-5 are made with a honeycomb structure? There’s a lengthy stenciled warning about something about it by the wing root. I didn’t have enough time to read it while rescuing my granddaughter’s glider.

If I was going to be in Thailand, I had to see that Corsair, upper wing mounted guns and all, up close. The rest of the pics felt obligatory.
The bipes and inter war birds were pretty ****ing cool though!
 
The Bronco was hiding just beyond the Spitfire.
So I’m scrawling through the tiny little pics looking for the Bronco ‘cause I know I walked by it. The order I posted them is not in the same order I took them. So it’s next to a tiny AT-6 photo in my phone. You’re all being very cruel to me and I’m now I am sad. This is the last time I divorce a woman and haul her butt back to Thailand just to take pictures of a “What is it” airplane.
I hope you are happy.
