The video is worrisome!

I can't quite make out the type, but wondering - MU-2? Roll control seems to be a factor in the loss of control.

The video seems to show it moving to left before diving to right and crashing, with smoke trailing. On board fire? Or pilots affected by something, like on the KLM Constellation many years ago.

King Air 350 and it looks like the outboard sections of both wings separated.

Manila Times reporting King Air 350, registration RPC2296 (another source reporting RPCC2296).

King Air - RP-C 2296

Agreed. Wing profile looks unusual in the plan view.

Condolences to all involved and hope CAAP can trace the cause of this accident.

So that's a King Air 350 with both wings missing outboard of the nacelles?!? - No wonder control seemed to be a problem! I guess that would explain the trails - fuel.... If that is the case, I presume that the investigation will state that the wings were not found at the scene of the crash.

the wings separated just as the plane exited the clouds, presumably when the crew saw the ground and pulled (very) hard..

.top photo airplane still intact..

next one, streaming fuel visible both sides indicates wing failure

airplane high speed and inertia carry it around to the accident

I'm not going to speculate, however, this image would suggest otherwise.

This may be something similar to the accident involving B200, G-PCOP here in the uk , both wings ( same construction as B300) on PCOP buckled at or near the overwing fuelling points following what was believed to be a repeated loss of control in IMC. The occupants were lucky that the aircraft recovered without complete structural failure occurring. Having been directly involved in the damage assessment and subsequent repairs ( both outer wings were replaced with new) the missing parts of the wings on this recent accident seem to correspond to where PCOPís failed. https://assets.publishing.service.go...PCOP_06-07.pdf

SSS, has that photo been confirmed as real
ĎTo me it appears genuine but my co workers suspect that itís a fake
Also has there been any confirmation that the aircraft wings tips did break off in flight

Hi There,

I'm reasonably certain the image is from the accident and untampered. I also saw a video which has been passed onto the AAIIB in Manila showing the aircraft descending "tipless" and what appears to be a wing tip slowly falling behind the accident aircraft.

Best,

SSS
