Nine people, including a Two Star General, have been killed in a plane crash in the Phillipines.

The twin-prop Nomad aircraft crashed into three houses and burst into flames shortly after taking off from Cotabato city, regional military commander Lt Gen Raymundo Ferrer said.

The plane was acquired by the government from Australia in 1976. Three others still in service were grounded, pending results of an investigation, said air force spokesman Lt Col Gerardo Zamudio.

Among those killed in the crash was Maj Gen Butch Lacson, the air force commander in the southern Philippines, Zamudio said.

The plane had stopped in Cotabato on its way from Davao city to the southern city of Zamboanga, Ferrer said.


Although it was a military aircraft that crashed, I thought best to post here as it came down in a residential neighbourhood. Mods, please move if you think this is wrong forum for this post.

Correct forum but you probably need to mention your source.

My bad. Sorry. Initially seen on Sky News on the TV, but I got the article from the Press Association via google http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukp...ALeqM5jfMZjanYFHsdVKk7f8qLctJapmYA Will edit the opening accordingly also.
