THAI emergency landing under investigation

HANOI (AFP): Thai Airways is investigating a fuel leak on a Boeing 777 which forced it to make an emergency landing in central Vietnam, airline officials said today. The aircraft landed in Vietnam’s third city of Danang early yesterday after the pilot reported plummeting fuel levels on a flight from Taipei to Bangkok, the officials said. Aviation fuel leaked all over the runway, but all 307 passengers and 19 crew were safely evacuated. They were flown on to Bangkok in a different aircraft later in the day.
