Not again! Lao Airlines plane crashes into river, killing 49

A Lao Airlines plane crashed today Wednesday October 16th killing all 44 passengers and five crew members on board. The twin-engine turbo plane was on a domestic flight from the capital Vientiane to the airport in the Champasak province in the Southern Asian country when it plunged into the river as it tried to land at Pakse International Airport. Passengers from 11 different countries were in the plane including three South Koreans, seven French, one American, one Chinese, one Taiwanese, one Canadian, five Australians and two Vietnamese.

State-owned Lao Airlines issued a statement saying the small plane ran into "extreme bad weather conditions" and crashed at 4:00pm (local time).

Mercy, Linda the way my heart beat , when I read not Gain, Thot it was another crash in Nigeria. This is sad though .

Sad tale.
Lao airlines have been experiencing financial difficulties for a while now,can't say if that has anything to do with the crash though.
Maybe the birds are jealous(for those who know what that means).

My heart skipped, I thought it happened in Nigeria! Phew!! Well, its still saddening that humans lost their lives over there. May their souls rest in peace.
Finally our Ministry for aviation will have something to talk back with and claim we ain't the only country experiencing air disasters.

When in South East Asia fly only Air Asia, Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai or Garuda airlines.

Stay away from Vietnam Air, Cambodian Air or Lao Airlines.
