The Crisis of Siam

A new series of videos were posted on YouTube a few days ago. They're talking about Thai politics in the past 2 years and mainly attack Gen Prem and Gen Sondhi.

I don't know who the creators of these clips are. But I know for sure that their intentions are not good. They did this to benefit themselves without considering the consequences that follow, either to their enemy, the country, or even themselves. Don't you think?

Note: these videos may be removed from YouTube soon, so watch it now before it gets deleted.

Part I: Defame the King

Part II: Eliminate the Heir

Plane Crash at Phuket Airport

On Sunday at 4pm local time, a 1-2-go plane flight OG269 crashed near the runway at Phuket Int'l Airport. Of a total of 128 passengers and crew, it's reported only about 40 survivors.

I knew one of the crew on that flight. A co-pilot, Montree. He didn't make it.

Montree and I went to flying school in Hua Hin on the same year, but on different classes. Although we're not very close friends, I was still in shock when I first heard that it was him on that flight. Actually we just met 2 weeks ago at Thai Airways. He was accepted as a pilot at Thai Airways and was about to start training there. His life as an airline pilot had just started. So sad.

I mourn for my friend, and all the passengers and crew who have lost their lives in this tragic accident.

A380 Evacuation Certification

With every new passenger jet aircraft comes certifications. One of the certification required by international aviation law is the evacuation simulation. The goal for the simulation is to evacuate a full plane, passengers and crew, within 90 seconds using only half number of exits available, in the darkness (only aircraft emergency proximity lights allowed).

This new super jumbo jet Airbus A380 can carry more than 800 passengers (in economy-class seat configuration). With its enormous size, evacuation of the whole aircraft is not going to be easy. See in the video how they did it.
