Due to the fact that the schedule as prepared for the Thai Air Force Mission by the CAF included very little activities involving air bases and inspection of air planes etc., but mostly of visits to training schools and academies. I decided not to follow the group to Southern Taiwan for further coverage which promises little but involves great travelling expenses.
