Pax on board:
En route from Roxas City to Calapan, while cruising at an altitude of 8,500 feet, the left engine suffered severe vibrations and was shut down. While descending to Calapan by night, at an altitude of 900 feet, the airplane stalled and crashed into the sea about 200 meters offshore. Seven occupants were rescued while one of the pilot was killed.
It is believed that the airplane stalled on descent due to an insufficient speed.
