BANGKOK (AP) — Thai Airways says one of its Airbus A330-300 planes has skidded off the runway while landing at Bangkok's main airport, injuring 14 passengers.
Thai Airways said on its Twitter account Monday that flight TG679 from Guangzhou, China, had a "glitch" in its wheel base while landing at Suvarnabhumi Airport. It said the injured passengers were sent to hospitals.
Pictures of late Sunday night's incident showed the plane resting in grass beside the runway with its nose down and emergency slides inflated.
Officials said the runway will be temporarily closed.
The incident occurred in less than two weeks after 20 passengers were injured when a Thai Airways flight hit a severe turbulence as it was descending to Hong Kong's airport.
Thai Airways said it still operates normally.
