  1. “MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) – All 8 people aboard a medical evacuation plane were killed in a crash during takeoff at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Sunday evening, March 29.
    The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said in a statement that the incident “happened at the end of Runway 24 while the aircraft was taking off” at around 8 pm.
    The plane, with registry number RP-C5880 and operated by local firm Lionair, was bound for Haneda Airport in Japan. It was engulfed in flames.
    “Unfortunately, no passenger survived the accident,” MIAA said.
    On Twitter, Senator Richard Gordon said those aboard included a flight medic, nurse, doctor, 3 flight crew, and a patient and the patient’s companion.
    Authorities said in a press briefing late Sunday that 6 Filipinos and 2 foreigners – a Canadian and an American – were aboard the plane.”
