Narrative:
The airplane took off from the Tuguegarao Airport (TUG) at 08:55 on a thirty-minute flight to Maconacon. The airplane did not arrive at its destination and authorities launched a search operation. The aircraft was found after thirteen days along the slope of a heavily vegetated area in Baggao, Cagayan.
Tuguegarao airport authorities said the weather was good when the plane took off. But authorities believe that the cloudy weather in the eastern part of Luzon possibly closed in on the ill-fated plane.
