The special exhibition of “Soaring in the sky with well-trained skills – Thunder Tiger Aerobatic Team” is now held at the Armed Forces Museum, which attracts parents to take their children who are now on their winter vacations to visit and together witness the hard and rigorous trainings of ROC Air Force Thunder Tiger Aerobatic Team as well as the excellent fighting power of the Air Force. There are 8 divided exhibition areas in the special exhibition, which are “Honorable History”, “Loyal Spirit”, “Aircrafts”, “Distinguished Services”, “Viewing Military Parade with Technology”, “Falling in Love with the Air Force”, “Going Ahead Together at the Same Speed” and “Looking for the Traits of Tiger”. Through artifacts, models and multi-media interactive contents, visitors of all ages may understand the characteristics of missions for the Thunder Tiger Aerobatic Team, their history of establishment and the results of rigorous trainings in the Air Force.
The Armed Forces Museum indicates that there are designed “learning sheets” for children visiting the special exhibition. Parents and children may find the answers for the questions on the learning sheet together at the special exhibition. A learning sheet with all correct answers on it can be exchanged with a souvenir at the service counter.
