On 5 October 2020, a Hawker 850XP conducted a passenger flight from Bangkok Don Muang International Airport to Pattani Airport. On landing the aircraft had a runway excursion and sustained damage, the 3 crew and 4 passengers were uninjured.
The Ministry of Transport, Thailand – Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation Commission requested assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) to download the aircraft’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and flight data recorder (FDR) to assist their investigation.
To facilitate this support and to provide the appropriate protections for the information, the ATSB appointed an accredited representative in accordance with paragraph 5.23 of ICAO Annex 13 and commenced an investigation under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003. The CVR and FDR were couriered to the ATSB technical facilities arriving on 29 September 2022. The ATSB has completed its work downloading the CVR and FDR.
Preliminary data was provided to The Ministry of Transport, Thailand – Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation Commission on 19 December 2022, with a copy of the data, animation of the occurrence and a report detailing the work undertaken by the ATSB provided on 24 April 2023.
