The plane left Manila around 06:13 on a domestic flight to Caticlan (MPH). The flight was uneventful until a go-around was initiated during the first approach at Caticlan.
During the second attempt to land the aircraft undershot the runway. After the first touchdown the aircraft bounced and landed on the runway. It then veered to the left side of the runway due to the left landing gear failure upon the contact with the embankment before the road at the end of the runway. The aircraft settled down at the concrete wall of the ramp.
Three airport personnel were injured because they were hit by debris when the plane crashed against the concrete perimeter fence. Three passengers suffered serious injuries.
The Caticlan Airport has a single runway (06/24) measuring 810 m (2657 ft) in length.

Probable Cause:

- The captain’s low level of experience (2,675 hours) and less than 500 hours PIC.
- The critical runway conditions (950 M and gusty wind conditions No PAPI).
- The absence of crew coordination (monitoring and CRM).
