Davao City: Sunday night (7:10pm), a Cebu Pacific plane flight 5J 971 carrying 165 passengers from Manila accidentally overshot the airport runway of Francisco Bangoy International Airport. The pilot, identified only as Capt. Oropeza reportedly lost control and forcefully landed the plane at the grassy area of the said runway due to heavy downpour of rain and the lack of runway lights.
All passengers of the said Cebu Pacific flight 5J 971 were safe and unhurt, but most of them are irritated due to the late response of the airport rescue personnel.
Meanwhile as of 9 pm, all flights to Davao Airport were temporarily cancelled.
