Severe air pollution forces Nok Air flight back to Bangkok

Pollution in Phrae province reached a very high level, obstructing a Nok Air plane from landing and forcing it to head back to Bangkok.

 

PM2.5 dust particles today (January 27) were found to be 564 micrograms per cubic meter in the province, while PM10 was 171 micrograms.

 

The particles were visible, with 191 hotspots, especially in the districts of Long, Song, and Wang Chin. Locals were urged to spray water to protect themselves.

 

The particles cut visibility, forcing the Nok Air flight back to Don Mueang Airport.

 

People who wanted to take the 11.30am flight had to head to Chiang Mai or Lam Pang airports to travel by air.

 

“However, those passengers did not need to buy new tickets to take a new flight,” Nok Air’s manager for Phrae Natcha Chaiyawan said.

 

She said those who wanted to come to Phrae from Bangkok needed to wait for the 6pm flight.

 

“The flights tomorrow [Tuesday] will be operated as usual,” she said. “However, if we experience the same problem again, we will do as we did today."

Better safe than sorry, already three aircraft incidents throughout the world in the last 24 hrs. As an aside, is it only me or do others find the Nok Air paint scheme a little scary? OK I get the image intent, a steam pigeon, but "flames" coming from the cockpit area and then down towards the tail abaft the engines, hmmmm!

Surely they are feathers?

Anything can be anything on TVF if the prejudice is strong enough. Nok is Thai, see?

And how exactly does that help?

It helps the particles stick to their bodies.  It keeps them cool.  Best way to calm a bird is to spray it with water.

The wind is from south now so they are getting all the cane smoke.
