LEGAZPI CITY: An Air Force Fokker plane nosedived in the runway at the Legazpi City Airport, causing delays in some flights here Monday morning.
Lt. Colonel Luisito Angeles, commander of Tactical Operations Group 5 of the Philippine Air Force, said the nose landing gear of the Fokker F27 failed, causing it to nosedive on the runway at 10:13 a.m.
He said the six passengers of the plane who came from Mactan Cebu were safe.
“They were here for a mission, we are doing our best effort to remove the aircraft in the runway,” said Angeles.
He said flights of the Cebu Pacific plane had been temporarily suspended.
