Taking selfie in this beach will award you death penalty

Taking selfie in this beach will award you death penalty

A beach close to a busy airport on Phuket in the country's south has become a popular attraction with holidaymakers because of its proximity to the island's airport, reports Daily Mail.

Mai Khao Beach, the strip of golden sand that runs alongside Phuket airport is regularly "buzzed" by airliners delivering tourists to the popular resort.

One resident, Winai Sae-io, told Phuket News at the time that locals objected to the plan, which they had been told included a goal of keeping 150 metres either side of the airport runway clear.

Mr Wichit said local authorities were concerned that the popular plane selfies are risky, and said local authorities must apply safety rules as required by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

Local officials have now said that the beach has become a distraction for pilots and are working for an exclusion area on the beach.

He later deleted the tweets, "because of the volume of toxic and misinformed traffic they prompted", Edwards explained in another tweet .

"I want (Airports of Thailand, the agency which operates Phuket International Airport) to look at us and support locals in making (a) living here, too".

"People and tourists will not be allowed to enter this area to take photos", Wichit Kaeothaithiam, Deputy Chief at Phuket airport told the Bangkok Post.

"The maximum penalty is the death sentence", Wichit Kaeothaithiam airport chief shared in accordance with the Air Navigation Act. "People will be able to take photos from the beach further away from the runway". "Authorities must apply strict safety rules as required by the International Civil Aviation Organisation".

Mr Kaeothaithiam believes that the bustling stretch of beach poses serious safety concerns for planes, as the commotion can distract pilots from landing.

Authorities are hopeful the new safety zone at Phuket Airport will reduce the amount of drone and light interference with incoming planes.
