A Thai Airways International flight from China veered off the runway as it arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport Sunday, and the airline said at least 13 people were injured in the rough landing. 

Authorities at the airport said they could not clear the accident, and flight delays were likely Monday.

After the accident and evacuation of passengers by slide, the airline moved in maintenance crews who immediately began work to cover up the national flag and Thai Airways International logos on the aircraft. By daylight, the plane was supposedly anonymous. (Photos by Panumas Sanguanwong, Somchai Poomlard)
