PAMPANGA, Philippines (5th UPDATE) - A cargo plane crashed Wednesday night in a village in Mexico, Pampanga, killing 3 of its passengers.
A bulletin from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said the cargo plane had 6 passengers including 3 Russians, 2 Uzbekistan nationals and a Bulgarian.

The injured survivors were Russian Tochonyy Yuriy, pilot; and Uzbekistan nationals Dmitry Strumminski, co-pilot and Ruziev Borhadir, crew.
Local authorities said the plane, with body number UP-AN216 and label Inter-Island Antonov 12, was on its way to Clark when it crashed in an open field in Barangay Laput (not Barangay San Patricio as earlier reported) shortly before 9 p.m..

The CAAP said the plane was chartered by the Pacific East Air Cargo for the United Postal Service (UPS). It came from Mactan, Cebu, authorities added.

The Clark International Airport Corp.'s control tower said they received an emergency call from the pilot around 8:48 p.m., informing them that a part of the was on fire.

Rene Lising, a villager who witnessed the plane crash, said he saw the aircraft flying very low before crashing. The impact snapped the plane into 2.

Other villagers said they heard a loud explosion from the crash site.
Senior Inspector Ronnie Barrera, Central Luzon regional fire chief, said the plane burst into flames after the explosion.

Barrera said they had a hard time putting out the fire because of the plane's fuel oil. -- Report from Mia Reyes, ABS-CBN Pampanga

The Kathryn Report News update and photos.

Sad for the lose of three crew members, one Bulgarian and two Russians, both pilots and a third person survived the crash.

Pilot reported the aircraft encountered electrical circuit problems and subsequently caught fire - a forced landing was attempted one hour into the flight into a rice field.

As of the freighter, the info is that there was an electrical short and fire on-board, and it was a bona fide emergency landing. The aircraft was engulfed in flames on landing, and only three crew members managed to escape (or were pulled out of fire by local villagers). The other three perished in the fire. RIP.
