Trang airport remained closed for the second day on Thursday, as work crews struggled to move the Nok Air plane that skidded off the runway during takeoff and became mired in the mud during heavy rain on Tuesday evening. 

Woradej Harnprasert, director-general of the Civil Aviation Department, said on Thursday he hoped  the operation to haul the Boeing 737-800 out of the mud and off the runway could be completed by 4pm.
