AOT – The cost of corruption

And this is the cost of corruption, the world’s longest radar breakdown happened at the airport earlier this week. I do hope one day people forego shot term personal benefits in exchange for long term growth for the country….

The simultaneous breakdown of both the main and back-up power supplies paralysed the radar system which guides flights through Suvarnabhumi International Airport for an hour.

A total of 49 aircraft were affected – 21 take-offs and 15 landings were delayed, while 13 flights were rerouted or returned to their departure point.

The radar breakdown may be the longest in the world for 45 years, and airline executives and pilots yesterday called the incident “inexcusable”
