Two pilots were recovered after a Philippine Air Force (PAF) plane plunged in waters near Sangley Point in Cavite Friday afternoon.
PAF spokesperson Maj. Aris Galang said an OV-10 aircraft faced difficulties prior to its landing at the Sangley Point Airport.
The two pilots were saved by local fishermen and were taken to the Major Danilo Atienza Air Base Hospital.
Both pilots sustained minor injuries including contusions and muscle soreness.
“Security elements were dispatched to secure the aircraft and recovery efforts are ongoing. The Investigation Team was already activated to conduct a thorough investigation of the mishap,” Galang said in a statement.
