Kites cause chaos at Danang airport


Published on Jul 1, 2010

Flights to and from Vietnam’s Danang airport were delayed last week after officials saw a group of children flying kites on the runway. According to a Thanh Nien News report, air traffic controllers stopped all flights from taking off or landing at around 5pm last Thursday, after seeing the kites. Deputy Chief of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, Lai Xuan Thanh, was reported saying that the kites were flown by local children, who had trespassed into the airport’s grounds.
