MANILA, Philippines — Some flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport were delayed yesterday after a C-130 plane of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) was stalled at the NAIA’s Taxiway Charlie 6.

Procedures in the recovery of the disabled aircraft were undertaken by the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA)’s emergency and operations teams in coordination with the PAF.

Both international and domestic runways of the NAIA remained open while recovery efforts were ongoing.

According to the MIAA, the aircraft carried 34 passengers and seven crew members.

Immediate disembarkation was conducted and passengers were transported by a ramp bus from the site to a nearby holding area. All passengers and crew are safe, the MIAA said.

The grounded aircraft has been towed and parked at Remote Parking Bay 24 at the NAIA Terminal 1.

“Mopping-up operations at the site of the incident are being done to ensure no presence of FODs prior to declaring it safe for aircraft use,” the MIAA said.
