Plane crash at Phuket

Posted by somtam2000 on 16/9/2007 at 19:41 admin

Media is reporting that a Orient Thai Airlines operated 1-2-Go budget flight has crashed on landing at Phuket. The aircraft apparently broke in two and The Nation is reporting at least 66 dead including many foreigners, of the 128 on board.

"A surviving Thai passenger said the plane "landed hard" and "bounced" and then skidded off the runway. Civil aviation official Chiasak Angkauwan said, "the airplane requested to land but due to the weather in Phuket -- strong wind and heavy rain -- maybe the pilot did not see the runway clearly.""
