PHUKET: One of the island’s most famous temples is threatening to file a police complaint after a remote-controlled aircraft crashed into the roof of the nuns’ dining hall on Wednesday night.
News of the damage at Wat Luang Pu Supha in Chalong Village 6 was reported to the media yesterday at 12:30pm by Mr Piyawat Leehaweerachart, a 45-year-old layman who serves as the temple’s financial affairs coordinator.
According to Mr Piyawat, the triangular-shaped aircraft slammed into the roof of the nuns’ dining hall, dislodging three ceramic tiles.
Mr Piyawat said it was not the first time a remote-controlled aircraft had crashed on temple grounds.
A group of remote controlled aircraft enthusiasts have long used the area to fly their aircraft, he said.
