    Default Cebu Pacific plane overshoots Davao airport runway

    Fifteen minutes for the emergency vehicles to arrive, 30 minutes before the passengers were allowed to disembark , and passengers were made to walk in the rain for 1 kilometer to the terminal...well that really sucks!!! You get what you paid for...

    DAVAO CITY, Philippines (UPDATED) - A Cebu Pacific plane carrying 165 passengers overshot the runway of the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City on Sunday evening, June 2.

    Col Leopoldo Galon, chief of the military's 5th Civil Relations Group, said flight 5J 971 from Manila overran the runway and hit its uncemented portion at around 7:10 pm.

    Galon said none of the passengers were hurt in the incident, which happened during heavy rain.

    A passenger, Jun Narciso, told Rappler that one of the plane’s engines was already on fire before landing.

    “The landing was very sudden and the pilot immediately braked. The pilot also immediately turned off the plane’s engine,” Narciso said.

    Luckily, he added, the heavy rain extinguished the fire.

    Another passenger, Laiza Lacida, however claimed the engine was not on fire before landing. "We can smell smoke inside the plane but the plane was not on fire," she said.

    Cebu Pacific Air said in an advisory that the plane landed safely but “veered off to the right side of the Davao International Airport runway during a heavy downpour”.

    “All 165 passengers have been safely shuttled to the airport terminal and their needs are being taken care of,” the airline company said.

    Passengers said they were irked, not just because of the incident, but also because of poor response from the airport and the airline company personnel.

    “The rescue team only arrived 15 minutes after the incident,” Narciso said.

    Narciso added that the cabin crew refused to open the plane's door and failed to explain to the passenger what was happening.

    “After 15 minutes, the pilot went out of the cockpit and explained that the problem was caused by the plane’s wiper,” Narciso narrated.

    Other passengers claimed that the responding units were not prepared and lack proper equipment.

    Most of the passengers had to walk almost a kilometer just to reach the arrival section of the airport without any personnel from Cebu Pacific offering assistance or even comfort, one passenger commented.

    The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines at the Francisco Bangoy International Airport refused to provide any information regarding the incident.

    Due to the incident, all other flights are temporarily cancelled as of posting. - Rappler.com

    AFAIK, it's more of the responsibility of the airport authority if it is related to emergency response time of the rescue personnel. Either way, it's pretty disturbing how ill prepared we are for emergencies at all levels whether it be on the road, at airports, at the LGUs, against fire, earthquake, etc. Just look at the plane crash of Jesse Robredo last year, they still had to enlist the help of specialized divers in the SAR efforts and that was just as small plane in a specific area.

    Good thing no one was hurt. Lalabas nanaman yung mga mahilig magreklamo sa service ng airline; tapos pag nag piso fare... galit na galit dahil mahirap mag log on sa Cebu Pacific.

    All along, I was under the impression that passengers should've been immediately evacuated from the aircraft after a crash as a precaution in case a fire breaks out. Especially if smoke is present inside the cabin (based on one passenger's account).

    As passengers, do we have the right to open the cabin doors (not during mid-flight, obviously) in an emergency similar to this?

    I find it so ironic that the air crash investigator can't fly directly to the site because the airport is totally shutdown after a single plane accident with no alternative nearby.

    It must really suck to be in his job when he needs to travel to the sites outside Metro Manila.

    Very bad handling of a crisis incident by CebuPac.

    Walang disaster or contingency response. It goes to show na talagang budget pati ang mga response protocols.

    Agree! Matagal ko na sinasabi dito yan, huwag sumakay ng budget airlines natin.
