Passengers Rescued From Boeing 747
This is the moment dozens of passengers were rescued from a stranded Boeing 747 after it skidded off the runway in heavy rain. The Jumbo Jet had descended last night (Mon) into Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, through a tropical lightning storm and monsoon downpours. But moments after touching down flight TG 679 from Guangzhou, China, veered to the side of the tarmac and juddered as it ploughed through grass at the side of the track. The aircraft - carrying 97 passengers and 18 crew - ran for more than 100 metres across the grass leaving thick rain-filled ditches.
