A Thai Airways plane skidded off the runway in Bangkok after the landing gear malfunctioned, slightly injuring more than a dozen passengers as they evacuated the jet, the airline said on September 9.

The incident late on September 8 at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport involved an Airbus 330-300 carrying 288 passengers and 14 crew members on a flight from Guangzhou in southern China, the carrier said.

The plane was seen resting on grass on September 9 morning next to the runway with its evacuation slides still deployed and the Thai Airways name and logo hastily covered up.-VNA
