Incidents and accidents

  • 15 April 1985: A Thai Airways Boeing 737-2P5 crashed, killing all 11 people on board. The crew had issued a radio call informing air traffic control that both engines had flamed out. No cause could be determined for the engine shutdown.
  • 31 August 1987: Thai Airways Flight 365 from Hat Yai International Airport crashed into the ocean on final approach, killing all 83 people on board. The investigation determined pilot error as the primary cause.
  • 16 September 2007: One-Two-GO Airlines Flight 269 arriving on a scheduled flight from Bangkok's Don Mueang Airport crashed after hitting the runway heavily while attempting to land in driving rain and severe wind shear. The McDonnell Douglas MD-82 slid off the runway, split into two, and exploded into flames after an apparent attempt to execute a go-around moments before touchdown. There were 123 passengers and 7 crew on board. 90 died and 40 were injured.
