Recalling Some of the Worst Philippine Air Travel Accidents

Most people think that the chance of survival in an airline accident is slim. For that reason, safety is the number one priority in civil aviation industry. Airline makers are always improving their designs to make  air travel safer. Now, air travel is considered to be the safest form of travel surpassing land and sea transportation.

While international aviation organizations continues to improve the safety standards of airlines, accident still happens. And the Philippines had a fair share in the list of those. Here are some of the worst.

Philippine Aviation Accidents

In June 26, 1987, Philippine Airlines Flight PR 206 crashed in Mount Ugu in Benguet killing all 50 people on-board. It was the worst air travel accident at that time.

Eleven years after the PAL accident, on February 2, 1998, Cebu Pacific Flight 387 crashed into Mount Sumagaya in Misamis Oriental killing all 104 people in the aircraft. Investigation indicates that the airline was flying above the mountain top but may have experienced a down-draft which caused it to crash to the slopes of the mountain.

In the year 2000, the worst accident in Philippine aviation occurred. Air Philippines Flight 541, while preparing to land in Davao International Airport, crashed into the mountain bursting in flames and killing all 131 passengers and crew members.

And just recently, Cebu Pacific made headlines with its back-to-back runway mishap in Davao and Manila airports.

Asiana Airlines Accident

Just a few days ago, the world witnessed another fatal airline accident when an Asiana Airlines aircraft crashed landed in San Francisco Airport killing 2 people and injuring over 100 people on-board.

Asiana Airlines was one of the world's biggest airline companies and considered to be one of the safest. But still, even a simple pilot error, as initial investigation shows, can cause a huge trouble.

  3. Planning a wedding that takes place under one roof, offers so many advantages. In the first instance a venue that offers a wedding package, tend to employ people who are experts in this field. They plan weddings for a living. They are the experts. Whilst many venues only offer the room and catering, a wedding under one roof many include a wedding planner and if they don't they will be working regularly with florists, cake makers, companies that do decorations, DJ's and photographers.
