The pilot of a Bangkok Airways flight has been killed and seven passengers injured as it skidded off the runway while landing at Koh Samui.
The Bangkok Airways flight, carrying 72 people, hit an old and unmanned control tower amid reports of heavy rain.
An investigation team from the Department of Aviation has been despatched to the accident site at Samui Airport.
Several were treated for minor bruises or shock - including two other Britons - and were resting at local hotels before being transferred to Bangkok, officials said.
