PAL Plane Stalls At TAG Runway

5 October 2015

A Philippine Airlines Airbus 320-200 plane (RP-C8609) with 100 passengers and 6 crew members on board stalled on the runway of Tagbilaran Airport forcing the airport's closure Saturday.

The PAL plane flying under flight PR2777 managed to land at around 4:01 p.m. on Saturday, but the right engine malfunctioned after employing reversed thrust causing it to stop at the runway. Its return flight to Manila was canceled at around 5 p.m. after airport authorities failed to removed the aircraft obstruction on the runway.  The aircraft has since been moved to the tarmac Sunday to facilitate landing of other aircraft.                                                                                CNN Philippines
