All Vipers landed after their demonstration and were parked at the static display. The three AU-23s opened the flying display with a 3-ship formation demonstration. Furthermore, an unknown Hercules did a paradrop. The annual Children’s Day Open House at Don Muang was rather disappointing this year. Don Muang is no longer used for commercial flights, which reduces the amount of traffic during the day enormously. Also, the show is now organised on the former domestic ramp of the civil airport side of the airfield. This means that you are not able to have a closer look at other aircraft on the military side, but you are also facing the sun most of the day. To make things even worse, most of the display aircraft did not use the nearest runway but the military runway, which is poorly visible from the ramp.
