Thai 747-400 of the runway @BKK

Hello everyone.

It seems that a Thai Airways 747-400 (HS-TGF) operating flight TG679 went of the runway during landing at runway 19R Bangkok Suvanabhumi airport in the evening of 8th October.

Here is a link to a website in Thai containing a photo:
**OLD LINK REMOVED FROM THE 2013 EVENT THE SAME FLIGHT**

More pictures and some info can be found here:
THAI ?jumbo? flight TG 679 skids off Suvarnabhumi runway while landing

Anyone has some more info?

Best regards

Jan

Looking at the photos in both articles it appears to have lost both outboard engines in the process

The two picture links are clearly not the same event.
One is a 747 and the other is an A330

That photo is A333 HS-TEF, which went off the BKK runway in September 2013, coincidentally also operating TG679.

97 Pax & 18 Crew on a B744? Turned out to be a costly trip all round.

4 Holer,
Absolute rubbish, stick to the facts. Badly damaged, yes, but certainly not "split in half".

In fact the aircraft was repaired after the 1999 accident (though any airline other than Qantas might well have written it off). It remained in the QF fleet until 2012.

"split in half"
I think he reckons that the fairway was split in half. It certainly made for an unplayable ball!

That was the 1999 Qantas overrun, not this week's Thai runway excursion.

Video of the latter being extricated from the mud:

That looks as if, once TGF was out of the mud, they started it and taxied away? Shirley they would have towed, as systems and brakes need to be checked?

I think they needed the engines PLUS at least two tugs, to get it pulled out. I'm not surprised, the wheels were mired pretty deep.

Scary with all those people running around it with the engines running. (Not clear, with the long camera lens, how close they actually were to the engines.)
