Chartered airplane crash-lands in Aurora

from abs-cbn interactice: Chartered airplane crash-lands in Aurora. "Four persons were declared safe after a chartered Duke-B60 crash-landed at the Dilasag airstrip in the province of Aurora at 9 a.m. Wednesday, the Air Transportation Office said. The chartered plane owned by Pateco was piloted by Capt. Felix Endaya and Capt. Ludivico de la Cruz. Transportation office chief Nilo C. Jatico said the aircraft took off from Manila at around 6:30 a.m. One of the pilots said that when the aircraft touched down, its right wheel hit a soft spot on the runway, damaging the aircraft. He blamed bad weather for the crash."

Note: If i'm not mistaken, PATECO is that big logging and veneer company in Dilasag.
