The Bombardier BD-700-1A11 Global 5000 was flying back to Manila with members of the Philippine government, such as cabinet member and secretary. During the take off on runway 18, the aircraft went out of control for undetermined reason. It veered off runway to the right, went through a grassy and waterlogged area, lost its left main gear and nose gear before coming to rest. All 15 occupants were safely evacuated while the aircraft was severely damaged. At the time of the accident, the weather conditions were considered as marginal due to rain falls and strong winds caused by the tropical storm Amang. The passengers were flying back to the capital city after taking part to the celebrations commemorating the official visit of Pope Francis.
