Light aircraft crash at Manila

A CARGO Beechcraft Baron aircraft (model unknown) crashed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in the Philippines at the weekend disrupting flights to and from the airport.

Flights were either delayed for two hours or diverted to nearby airports while the runway was being cleared.

Manila International Airport Authority spokesperson, Connie Bungag, said that the plane’s landing gear collapsed on touchdown.

“No injuries were reported,” she said. “It was a ‘fish flight’ from Palawan; the plane was carrying fish cargo on board.”
