IL-76, H6K and Y9 are all 中国空军 China Airforce. Obviously the military knowledge level of the reporter is very much lacking.
Agreed, and therefore I'm sometimes more than sceptical on what CHinaMilitary posts, since it depends on the reporter.

Seems to be common among 'journalists' all around the world now. Another example: anything more armored than the average car is a tank

Vietnam Era flight suits, I wish I could see the boots, hell, I wish I had another pair of those boots! those black leather patches with silver wings on the left breast make me wanta cry, well that and the hats! LOL

Thailand had many U.S. bases during the Vietnam era. Wouldn’t be surprised if they have the same fashion sense.

strange, that they refer to a "naval aviation brigade under the PLAN", since all but the JH-7A (from the former 9th NAD) are clearly from the PLAAF.​

The JH-7 pilot's head badge is indeed PLAN, the anchor.

The arm badge also strongly indicate PLAN aviation.

Yes, that all was excluded in my post, but none of the other types even if clearly stated in their captions belong to the PLA NA.
