'Missing aircraft in Isabela has been found' – IMT Spokesperson


Isabela, Philippines – The missing aircraft in Isabela has been found, confirms Incident Management Team (IMT) Spokesperson Joshua Hapinat.


The Piper PA-32-300 type of aircraft, with registry number RP-C1234, went missing on November 30 after taking off from Cauayan Airport at around 9:39 a.m. It was supposed to land at Palanan Airport at 10:23 a.m.

The plane owned by Fliteline Airways and operated by Cyclone Airways was piloted by Captain Levy N. Abul II, with a passenger on board.


Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said the aircraft did not send distress signals to the Philippine Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre (PARCC), but their Operations Center from Cauayan Tower received a distress message with a code word “DETRESFA*” at around 11:08 a.m. on the same day.


The last known position of the missing aircraft, according to Flight Radar 24's last recorded blip, was at 10:00 a.m., approximately 29.09 nautical miles east of Cauayan Airport.


While the Philippine Airforce’s helicopter was conducting an aerial search this Tuesday, it located the aircraft in the mountainous area of Isabela.


“Piper plane has been found by PAF Sokol helicopter. However, the chopper cannot get close enough to determine the condition of the occupants. The IMT is carefully studying its next move,” said Hapinat.
