The nose landing gear of a Thai Airways Airbus A330-300 aircraft collapsed after the aircraft made a runway excursion upon landing at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport on 8 September.
The aircraft was operating on the Guangzhou-Bangkok route, and the incident occurred at 23:20 local time, says a company spokeswoman. The 288 passengers and 14 crew evacuated via the aircraft's slides, which resulted in 13 minor injuries.
The spokeswoman could not confirm the aircraft's registration number, but images on social media show the registration as HS-TEF.
Images found on social media platforms appear to show that the front landing gear collapsed during the incident, and that the cowling of the aircraft's left side Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engine was damaged.
