Fokker 27 Fails At Legaspi Airport

13 May 2015

The newest Fokker F-17 (10669) of the Philippine Air Force crash landed in Legaspi Airport Monday morning causing diversions of all flights to the airport. None of the six passengers and crew were hurt.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines said the F-27 landed safely at the airport but its front landing gear (shown on the lower part of this photo) collapsed around 10:11 a.m. when it made contact to the runway. The aircraft came from Mactan Airbase in Cebu.


  1. It's a Fokker Friendship F-27, and it's far from new. It's almost 30 years old.

    1. Indeed. But it was PAF's newest acquisition of the type.

    2. that's what you get for making all cheap refurbished equipment as new equipment for modernization.

  2. refurbished siguro yan...wala na bago sa Fokker assembly line
