MANILA, Philippines — Another Chinese aircraft yesterday reportedly landed at the Davao City International Airport. 

Citing information from the Tactical Operations Group of the Philippine Air Force in Region XI, ABS-CBN last night reported that the aircraft landed at 12:18 p.m. and left at 12:59 p.m.

The plane refueled at the airport before flying to China, the report said. 

In a separate post on Twitter, Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano questioned the landing of the Chinese plane. 

“We have no formal military agreements with China which makes landings like that unusual, especially if high defense officials were not aware of it,” he wrote. 

“On one hand, we have existing visiting forces agreements with Australia and the United States,” he added, apparently reacting to critics who called him out for not questioning the recent landing of an Australian plane in the country. 

Earlier this month, a Chinese military transport plane also landed in Davao City to refuel. 

Malacañang said there was clearance from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines for the said plane to land in the country.
