Ubon RTAFB - U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War & Today

Ubon Air Base - Today

These series of photos were taken from a new hotel that is located near the West perimeter road. I was able to get to the roof of the 10 story hotel and get some fantastic panoramic shots. Some photos were taken from the new Ubon Municipal Airport. I have been escorted into the base 2 times, but have not been allowed to photograph anything on base.
