50 Foreigners among 87 killed in Phuket plane crash. Of the 43 survivors, 15 are Thais and 28 foreigners.
Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongchaum earlier said that there were 78 foreigners on board. Tourists from Australia, Austria, Britain, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands were being treated at main provincial hospitals.
One survivor told of a fast drop in altitude by the airplane and sudden brief jerk upward. He said they plane then crashlanded and exploded. He saw several fellow passengers on fire.
It was not immediately clear if the pilot, who was reportedly killed, was attempting to pull the aircraft up in the last minute when it crashlanded. He had reportedly been allowed to circle the airport to wait for improvement in weather conditions.
An official at the Phuket Airport control tower, who asked not to be named, said the pilot had been told of bad weather conditions, especially very strong winds. Shortly before the illfated flight crashlanded, another lowcost airliner originating from Hong Kong had successfully touched down, he said.
Officials said victims could have died on impact, or from suffocation or fire resulting from explosions. According to an initial account, the plane’s fuselage was torn open in the accident, some of the survivors were those thrown out through the opening.
Like several other airlines, One Two Go has reportedly undergone manpower changes. The boss of One Two Go and Orient Thai budget airlines, Udom Tantisprongchai, is said to have replaced several of his Western and Thai pilots – allegedly to cut costs and reduce the chance of work disputes with crews such as Indonesian and Philippine pilots.
However, authorities insisted it was too soon to presume anything, including whether human errors played a part in the tragedy. Certain reports said the pilot was given permission to abort the landing in the final minutes.
The dead lists still waiting to be confirmed.
Below is the passenger list of the 12Go aircraft.
