MANILA, Philippines – Authorities retrieved on Tuesday morning, March 14, the bodies of six persons who died on the Cessna 206 that crashed in Divilacan, Isabela, more than 330 kilometers north of Manila.
The plane, with registry number RP-C1174, went missing on January 24 after it took off from the Cauayan airport in the same province. Its wreckage was found only on March 9 by a team of soldiers who were assisted by the indigenous Dumagat residents of Barangay Ditarum in Divilacan.
The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said in a statement on Tuesday that a Philippine Air Force Huey helicopter was deployed to retrieve the bodies.
Representatives from CAAP’s Aircraft Accident Investigation and Inquiry Board remain at the site to conduct further investigation. – Rappler.com
