"Visuthakasatriya" ready for departure back to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi as TG318. It's so wonderful to see an airline maintain its aircraft so well that they don't look nearly as old as they are. It's rather hard to believe that this particular airframe is just over 20 years old.

"Visuthakasatriya" was the name of their first 747 HS-TGA around 1980 and "Dararasmi" that of HS-TGC. Interesting they are used again,do you know what they mean?

Interesting indeed. I did a google search on "Visuthakasatriya" but all that showed up were other pictures of this aircraft so i'm afraid I don't know what it means. Dararasmi on the other hand I could find, She was a Princess from Chiang Mai.

Great shot! I flew on it Sep/09 HKT-BKK. Great memory. It will be sad to see the last of TG's 744's retire.

Not an endeavour for the faint hearted to nail it from my default spot - in the night - in the current circumstances.
