Man Drives Onto Bangkok Airport Runway

Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport might be quieter than normal at the moment but it is unlikely that the pilot of a Boeing 777 expected to see a car on the runway just after he had landed.

That is exactly what happened on 11th January when the driver, who claimed to have made a wrong turn, appeared on the runway.

The car was escorted out of the danger area and the man was arrested. Reports claim that he was either high on methamphetamine or the substance was found in his car. He is believed to have been arrested for entering a restricted area of an airport, driving under the influence of drugs, and illegal possession of drugs.
