Plane crash lands, engine tears off in Manila

A Xiamen Air Boeing 737-800 kidded off the runway while landing in Manila

A passenger filmed the dramatic moment a plane "crash landed" at Manila global airport in Philippines early Friday and skidded off the runway.

Xiamen Airlines said 157 passengers on board and eight crew were safely evacuated from the plane after the crash and there are no reports of injuries.

Four passengers sustained scratches. The regulator said it also sent a team to Xiamen Air.

All the passengers and crew of Xiamen Air flight MF8667 were safe and were taken to an airport terminal, where they were given blankets and food before being taken to a hotel, Philippine officials said.

The last major aviation accident was reported on May 18, when a Boeing 737 flight, crashed in Havana killing 112 passengers on-board. He cited an initial report that the plane appeared to have "bounced" during the landing then its lights went out.

The plane "misapproached" on its first attempt to land and lost contact with the control tower on the second attempt when it skidded off the runway after touching down, said Ed Monreal, the general manager at Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Investigators retrieved the plane's flight recorder and will get the cockpit voice recorder once the aircraft has been lifted to determine the cause of the accident, Sydiongco said.

A smaller runway for domestic flights remained open, they said.

TV footage showed the plane slightly tilting to the left, its left wing touching the ground and its landing wheels not readily visible as emergency personnel, many in orange overalls, examined and surrounded the aircraft.

Flights from the Middle East and the United States were diverted to the worldwide airport at Clark, north of Manila, and to the central island of Cebu.

Aviation authorities have closed the airport's main runway until 4.00 pm (0800 GMT), forcing some airlines to cancel, delay or reroute flights. Only one passenger had survived. Dozens of worldwide flights were cancelled or either returned or were diverted elsewhere in the region, officials said.
