Davao Bgy. Stirred By Fallen Plane Part
It seemed like a scene from "The God's Must be Crazy" all over again last Thursday morning (October 23)as the residents of barangay Bucana in Matina, Davao City scampered for cover to avoid an object falling from the sky at around 9:00 in the morning.
The fallen object was however not a bottle of Coke like in the movies but rather a metal object which, as confirmed by a press statement later on, was the hydraulic cover of Cebu Pacific flight 5J348.
Residents said they heard a plane prior to seeing the falling object which they described as "bakal na color yellow ug gold" (a yellow and gold-colored metal). They thought a plane had crashed so they ran for cover.
The management of Cebu Pacific said the plane's hydraulic cover accidentally fell off while on flight. However, it dismissed the incident saying the hydraulic cover was just a minor part of the aircraft which does not affect the plane's condition or stability.
Do you have any relative or friend on board Cebu Pacific flight 5J348 last Oct. 28? Then you may have a story to tell.
