After an Asian Spirit YS11 clipped powerlines at a provincial airport a few days ago, now this:

The Philippine Star 10/20/2002

A four-seater, single-engine plane owned by SEAIR landed on its belly yesterday at the Manila Domestic Airport after its landing gear collapsed on touchdown on Runway 13-31.

All three passengers and two pilots of the Cherokee-type aircraft escaped injury. The plane was immediately towed to a hangar.

The chartered flight came from Clark Air Base in Pampanga. Manning the cockpit were Capt. Iren Dornier and First Officer Bernardo Dollas. – Rey Arquiza

Thou assumeth too much Fritzi...


One pilot flying the aircraft. Next to him, another qualified pilot - just along for the ride as a passenger. Two other non-pilots in the back seats.

Total: Two pilots, three passengers...but still only four people. Ta-da!

Although in this case I suspect it's the paper that can't count.

Yes, but it was piloted by SEAIR's CEO, Capt. Iren Dornier.
Seair operate a fleet of L410 Turbolets, a DO28D and (according to JP Airline Fleets) a DHC7. They are an imprtant commuter airline in the Philippines.

Heinz, can you provide me with the link for the incident above, if you have it? I didn't hear about that one. Thanks.



Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Trickijedi, there was an article in the online edition of the Philippine Star which can no longer be retrieved.
There was also a short thread on the subject here at airliners.net :

Hope this helps.
