On Saturday we went to an airshow with our Taekwondo school, hosted by the Korean Air Force: First Fighter Wing.

There was a competition for school children who designed and built rockets propelled by pressurized water. On display were: jet fighters, support trucks, airport vehicles, gear and equipment, and an array of armament. There was live music the whole time. The KAF also provided a personal escort for any person who had a disability; everyone with a special need was cared for, looked after and lead by an AF personnel. THAT’S hospitality.

Kids were taken for rides in an armored personnel carrier. What kid (or parent) doesn’t want to ride in an APC?  There was a small tent city of food and drinks, and shaded picnic areas. The KAF thought of everything and treated each of us with respect and the highest professionalism. Thanks Korea!
