The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) reported that some flights experienced delays after an aircraft stalled at the taxiway of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Thursday, February 22.

Based on MIAA’s Flight Advisory No. 1 obtained by DZRH News, the Philippine Air Force C130 aircraft carrying 41 people suddenly stopped at NAIA's Taxiway Charlie 6, prompting MIAA emergency and operations teams and the Philippine Air Force to conduct recovery procedures.

“Some flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) were delayed due to a stalled C130 aircraft at NAIA’s Taxiway Charlie 6. Procedures on recovery of disabled aircraft were jointly undertaken by the MIAA emergency and operations teams in coordination with the Philippine Air Force,” it said.

MIAA said NAIA's international and domestic runways remained operational during the recovery procedures.

Thirty-four passengers and seven crew members onboard the flight were reportedly “safe and unharmed” as they were disembarked immediately and taken to the nearby holding area via ramp bus.

A mopping operation was conducted thereafter.

According to RH Sherwin Alfaro’s report, the C130 aircraft came from a local domestic flight.
