The aircraft embarked to its first stop in Seoul Incheon yesterday (29 July).
After a stopover at Incheon, the aircraft heads to Yangon (Myanmar), the first location of the demonstration tour. The aircraft will then visit Hanoi (Vietnam), Bangkok (Thailand) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) before heading north to Nagoya (Japan).
