On 4 August 2009 Bangkok Airways Flight PG266 set off from Krabi for a domestic flight to Koh Samui, Thailand. The ATR-72 aircraft was carrying 68 passengers and four crew. At approximately 14:15 local time the French/Italian-made aircraft attempted to land at Koh Samui and skidded off the runway crashing into a disused air traffic control tower. Reports suggest that of the 71 survivors, 41 people reported injuries including broken limbs and whiplash. We represent and advise passengers who were injured in this accident. To date no accident report has been published identifying the cause of the crash although it has been reported that Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation blames the ‘heavy rain and wind’ in the vicinity at the time. We are investigating the possible causes of the crash including adverse weather conditions, pilot error and fault with the aircraft’s components.
