Phuket Air under scrutiny in the U.K. – defects found on two planes
8 April 2005

UK CAA safety inspectors have grounded a Phuket Air Boeing 747-200 and banned another from carrying passengers after uncovering a series of big defects. The TCAS on one 747 was found to be broken and the evacuation safety lights were not working on another. The Department for Transport had ordered the emergency inspections after three safety scares in four days, involving planes bound for London. (The Times)
