A man in Thailand drove his car right onto an active airport runway, shocking airport staff.
The motorist under the influence of drugs, drove his car towards a plane which had just landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.
The video was filmed by ground staff. “I don’t know how the car made it onto the runway,” the person can be heard saying.
“The airport is such a valuable company, but they haven’t even managed to stop the car from getting into the airport. This is such a safety and security breach. It’s so terrible.”
