No Plane Crash In Sultan Kudarat - CAAP Official

No Plane Crash In Sultan Kudarat - CAAP official

An Aviation official announced Monday (June 15) that there was no Plane Crash in Sultan Kudarat, after extensive search operations in three municipalities turned out negative.

The search, involving local police, the 601st Army Brigade, the Marines, and local rescue officials, spanned the towns of Esperanza, Senator Ninoy Aquino, and Lebak after reports of an alleged Airplane Crash surfaced at around noon on Sunday (June 14).

Police said that reports from the ground showed no findings yet. The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), which regulates Commercial and Private Aviation in the country, said all commercial planes were accounted for.

According to CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio, reports about the alleged Crash spread after a radio station broke the news without verifying the information. In an earlier phone interview on Monday with CNN Philippines' Headline News anchor Amelyn Veloso, Apolonio pointed out the possibility that a sprayer plane, used in sprinkling fertilizer or pesticide on crops, could be involved.

He said this after ruling out the possibility that it was a Commercial Plane that Crashed.

Sprayer planes do not ask for flight schedules from CAAP but Apolonio added that the possibility of a Crash is very remote.

"So far our people near the areas, as far as Zamboanga, already confirmed that there are no reported Plane Crash. But we're still awaiting the report of the local authorities."

NASA satellite explosion?
Some locals in Barangay Legodon, Sultan Kudarat reported seeing an explosion between 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.

They said they saw a ball of fire falling from the sky. Others reported that they heard a loud explosion first and then saw a falling object.

Late Sunday night, a text message circulated in the province saying that a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Spacecraft put in orbit 17 years ago fell in Sultan Kudarat and exploded while in the atmosphere.

The text message allegedly came from the Philippine National Police (PNP).

The Sultan Kudarat police, however, denied that it circulated the message.

Local news identified the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRRM) as the alleged Spacecraft that exploded.

The TRRM is a joint project between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to study rainfall for weather and climate research.

But a NASA re-entry and risk assessment report on June 4 said that the satellite is predicted to reenter Earth's atmosphere on Wednesday(June 17).
