Philippine Airlines: Accident in Kalibo
A Philippine Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration RP-C8613 performing flight PR-321 from Manila to Kalibo with 127 passengers and 6 crew, touched Kalibo Airport’s perimeter fence and damaged the right landing gear.
The crew aborted the approach to Kalibo and returned to Manila, where the airplane landed safely about 2 hours after departure.
The only victims were a married couple riding a tricycle on the road ahead of runway 23. They were blown over when the airplane went around. The couple was taken to a local hospital in Kalibo.
Kalibo’s runway 05/23 is only 2187 meters (7200 feet) long. The road from Kalibo to New Washington passes in close distance to the threshold of runway 23.
