Army zeppelin crashes

13 12 2012

Readers who have been with PPT for some time will know that we have taken an interest in the Army’s shady deal that involved purchasing a 350-million baht military blimp from a penny company that no longer exists in the United States. The deal reeked of kickbacks and/or lack of any good sense.

Today, the Colonel Blimps in the Army have seen their zeppelin crash in Patani, “during its first active operation.” The crash saw two pilots and two technicians escape with minor injuries.

This crash follows a series of earlier failures associated with this silly waste of taxpayer funds. For a bit of a round-up of our previous posts on the so-called Sky Dragon, see our post that began: PPT sometimes finds it difficult to post on the shenanigans at the Army. Difficult because the silly duffers we call Colonel Blimps, who run the Army seem so dense that they repeatedly make themselves look like hopeless fools. The Army has been paying about 300,000 baht a month to keep the blimp in a hanger and gassed up, and now it has crashed.
