What a strange looking plane. More info here.
Laos is never in the news. But this crash ended the streak. Some very important people died in the crash, including:
- Douangchay Phichit: deputy prime minister/defense minister/Politburo member
- Thongbane Sengaphone: chief of public security
Whether this was an unfortunate accident or sabotage is unknown. It will be interesting to see how the government deals with the power vacuum.
