As a follow up to my earlier report, a couple of hours ago, here's an update. The sad news is that the pilot of the flight has indeed been killed and that there are now only 9 passengers injured out of which 7 severely. Here's a list of the injured.
Passengers stranded at Samui airport are to be transported by ferry to Surat Thani airport and the airport remains closed until further notice.
In contrast to earlier reports, only the pilot has been killed, at this very moment and hopefully it remains like that. RIP to the pilot and his family.
The following pictures have not been taken by me but show the structural damage to the aircraft.
Here one can clearly see how the cockpit got almost compressed into the old control tower.
Amazingly no fire broke out, which must have saved various lives.
