Nok Air Flight DD7805, heading from Nakhon Si Thammarat to Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport, made an emergency landing at Surat Thani airport, Thailand, at about 8:20 a.m. on August 31.
The pilot requested permission for emergency landing after the left wing of Boeing 738 aircraft was hit by birds. The aircraft made an uneventful landing and all 139 crew and passengers remained unharmed.
According to Atthaporn Nuang-udom, director of Surat Thani airport, “The crew and passengers were then assembled in the airport’s arrival lounge. NokAir arranged for another aircraft to pick them up and flew them safely to Don Mueang on Sunday morning.”
