To amortize the expenditure, they could recycle the ship to host sky sailing tours in Phuket!!:welcomeani:...

No doubt at least half of the 350Million went in other pockets

I suppose at least this particular 'white elephant' had some use in trying to locate these mad muller muslims. Cannot see the submarines serving the same purpose.  Oh, no wait, they are securing the seas from the invasion of the Laos navy !

Obviously never meant for surreptitious surveillance then....maybe the 350m was the cost from the mall hello kitty balloon vendor to supply enough helium tanks to fill it.....

What a farce.

The politicians are either too scared to veto the Armed Forces, or are receiving part of the money (even the brainy Abhisit defended the GT200).

And the Thai media are too timid to even scratch at the surface of obvious frauds.

But I must applaud the Army for admitting that the blimp is worthless.  I await the Admiral to step forward and say that the aircraft carrier is a useless albatross.
