Equipment arrives on transport from the south >


U-tapao PTT staff remove remaining fuel whilst road base is delivered (see in background) and levelled over the recovery route >


Air-bags are placed under the fuselage to lift it clear of the ground >


Thai Airways engineers supervise the lowering of the nose onto a trailer - note damage to both engines >


A makeshift ramp is created in preparation for a move to solid runway but the main gear collapses and causes more delays >


Eventually a badly damaged 737 is towed onto the runway >


I believe airframe and engineering inspections and essential repairs could take months before a ferry-flight is possible to get the 737 back to it's home base for a complete overhaul and Airworthiness inspection.  Many 100's of millions for recovery and repairs.
