Airplanes at Phuket Airport

It's often fun to see the airplanes taking off and landing to the Phuket Airport. The direction of landing and taking off, depends of the monsoon season. During the dry season, planes land from west towards to the east, which offers great photo oppotunities of capturing a landing plane along with the Mai Khao beach. 

Planes always land and take off to the wind. The take-off pattern is also a good indication where the wind blows. PanPhuket.com shows Phuket weather services as well as Phuket Flightradar
