EIGHT Philippine Navy members cheated death after their twin-engine plane went on emergency landing Panay, Capiz yesterday due to mechanical problems.

Lt. Commander Ed Linpuna said they were forced to land on Roxas City after one of the two engines of their 10-seater Norman High Wing Navy Plane stopped running some 37 nautical miles from the airport. They were forced to land on a fishpond at Brgy. Agoho, Panay, damaging the plane’s left wing.

Linpuna said they left the Ebuen Airbase in Mactan, Cebu for Sangley Point in Cavite.

The other passengers of the plane were Capt. Antonio Indab, Lt. Sr. Grade Paul Hechanova, Lt. Sr. Grade Antonio Bosch, Lt. Sr. Grade Rodiart Babera, Lt. Sr. Grade Joseph Lauron, ATC Chris Buctil and ATC Vic Santoc.

All Navy members are in safe condition except for Babera who suffered a minor injury in the upper portion of his left eye.
