Bangkok Post : General news

he professionalism of Thai Airways International's cockpit crew has been questioned by aviation experts after one of its pilots supposedly failed to report a recent incident in which a THAI aircraft skidded off the runway at Suvarnabhumi airport.

The 260-seat Airbus A300-600 was landing after an afternoon flight from Phuket about two weeks ago in 24-knot winds and rain when it skidded off the left side of the runway, according to industry sources.

Most passengers on board the THAI jetliner were unaware of the incident which caused only minor damage to the aircraft and the runway, with no injuries or fatalities.

But QF pilots could hardly cover up that little expedition from the runway :oops: . It was just a little obvious that they had left the hard stuff.
Yes, exactly. If you don't replace your divots, you can expect to get caught. :D

LOL, thems were some big divots! The safety experts always tell people to stay off the golf course during a storm. Now we know why :shock: .
