Dipolog Flight Hits Hailstorm

27 July 2015

A Philippine Airlines A320 flight (PR2557) bound for Dipolog was forced to return to Manila airport this morning after encountering massive hailstorm that broke its windshield endangering the aircraft pressurization integrity.

The plane was reaching for higher altitude after take-off when huge hailstorm bombarded its frame causing cracks to its windshield.

The Airbus aircraft successfully returned to the airport with no reported injuries. A replacement flight was later flown in the afternoon.
