A Gulfstream G200 jet overshot the runway of the Bicol International Airport in Daraga, Albay before noon on Wednesday, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

In a text message, CAAP spokesman Eric Apolonio said the jet plane carrying six passengers overshot the runway at 11:32 a.m. All passengers were reported safe, Apolonio said.


Initial investigation showed that the aircraft lost its control due to strong winds, according to a spot report by the Daraga Municipal Police Station.


The report stated that the pilots, led by Captain Jun Pangilinan, then decided to land on the runway of the Bicol International Airport.

The pilots, however, opted not to reveal the incident’s complete details due to confidentiality, saying only a “higher office” would be able to give a further report of the incident, the police report said.

Apolonio said the CAAP has dispatched an aircraft accident investigation team to the site to investigate and determine the cause of the incident. /jpv
