, Sri Lanka. As the plane didn't have enough fuel to reach Colombo, it refueled in Penang, Malaysia and then flew to Don Mueang (Don Muang). The hijackers demanded the release of Commando Jihad members imprisoned in Indonesia, and US$1.5 million, as well as another plane to take the released prisoners to an unspecified destination. The then Kopasandha commandos (now Kopassus), led by Lieutenant Colonel Sintong Panjaitan and directly supervised by Lieutenant General Benny Moerdani as the head of the Armed Forces Intelligence, who took part in this mission, trained only three days with totally unfamiliar weapons, brilliantly executed this fast-paced operation. One of the Kopasandha commandos was shot by the hijacker leader, who then shot himself. The airliner's pilot, Captain Herman Rante, was shot dead, probably by a stray bullet. The other hijackers were killed and the hostages rescued. *April 27, 1980 - a Thai Airways Flight 231 BAe 748 en route from Khon Kaen to Bangkok lost altitude during a thunderstorm and crashed about 8 miles from Don Mueang International Airport (formerly: Bangkok International Airport). All four crew members and 40 of the 49 passengers were killed. *April 15, 1985 - a Thai Airways Boeing 737#737-200 Boeing 737-200 hit high ground on Phuket (Phuket city) and was destroyed by the impact and subsequent fire. All four passengers and seven crew members were killed. The accident occurred after a failure of both engines was reported.

September 24, 1995. Retrieved on November 28, 2008. 200px (File:Sithan Gate, Khon Kaen University .JPG) - '''Mor lam sing''' (Thai (Thai language) Isan (Isan language) หมอลำซิ่ง) is a fast-paced, racy, modernized version of the traditional Lao (Laos) Isan song form ''mor lam''. ''Sing'' comes from the English (English language) word "racing" (a reference to the music's speed and its origins among Isan's biker (motorcycle) fraternity). A lead singer is accompanied by the ''khaen'', a bamboo mouth organ, Western drums, electric guitar, and electric keyboard (Keyboard instrument)s and bass guitar. The style was invented in Chaiyaphum province around 1985, and was popularised over the next few years after it was taken up by Ratdri Sivilai in Khon Kaen. It is based on the Khon Kaen style of ''lam tang san'', but it incorporates string instrumentation, luk thung singing styles and extensive use of the Central Thai language rather than Isan (Isan language). Regional styles Isan has regional styles, but these are styles of performance rather than separate genres. The most important of the styles were Khon Kaen and Ubon, each taking their cue from the dominant form of ''lam gon'' in their area: the ''lam jotgae'' of Khon Kaen, with its role of displaying and passing on knowledge in various fields, led to a choppy, recitative-style delivery, while the love stories of Ubon promoted a slower and more fluent style. In the latter half of the 20th century the Ubon style came to dominate; the adaptation of Khon Kaen material to imitate the Ubon style was sometimes called the Chaiyaphum style.

Most of them recognized the superior status of Siam, in accord with what 20th century scholars later described as the Mandala (Southeast Asian history) system. Under this system, Muang leaders were granted something equivalent to European 'fiefdom' and Thai feudal titles (Thai royal and noble titles#Feudal lifetime titles for male commoners (all obsolete)) as 'governor', having full right of ruling over their towns. Thus, they eventually became the subjects of Siamese royal court in Bangkok. New towns were founded such as Chaiyaphum, Udon Thani, Khon Kaen and Ubon Ratchathani, along with many minor towns such as Han Chai Cham Na (Amphoe_Maha_Chana_Chai#History).

This was the first serious Indonesian airline hijacking, since the first was a desperate Marine hijacker who was killed by the pilot himself. The hijackers, a group called Commando Jihad, hijacked the DC 9 "Woyla", enroute from Palembang to Medan, and ordered the pilot to fly the plane to Colombo

, ''Van Valkenburgh'' headed for the United States. She completed a circumnavigation of the globe, sailing via Singapore, Federated Malay States; Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Ras Tanura, Aden; the Suez Canal&mdash;transiting that waterway on 14 November; Naples and Genoa, Italy; Cannes, France; and Gibraltar; reaching Norfolk, Virginia, on 12 December. Historically, remisiers first appeared in the region during the colonial period in Malaya (British Malaya) (the collective name comprising the Crown Colonies of Malacca, Penang and Singapore; the Federated Malay States; and the Unfederated Malay States), where they dealt primarily in rubber and tin-related companies that were listed on the London Stock Exchange, on behalf of Malaya-based clients. From the point of view of the stockbroking companies, the use of remisiers allowed them to generate additional trading volumes and revenues without the need to incur a fixed cost base or the need to build a customer base directly. From the point of view of the remisier, the additional financial burden of having to bear – or recompense to the stockbroking company - his or her own operational costs (in today’s context, this may include the rental of office space and ancillary costs, telecommunications costs, and computer hardware and software costs) is outweighed by the potential for substantial commission income through his or her 40% share of the trading commission. In addition, a remisier remains the gatekeeper for his or her own client relationships. ''Walton'' subsequently conducted two more WestPac deployments out of Pearl Harbor. During the fifth deployment, the ship visited Singapore, the Federated Malay States; Hong Kong; Kobe, Japan; the Marianas; and Chinhae, Korea; where she, in company with
