An unfortunate event has taken place a few minutes ago as RP-C5880 operated by Lion Air Corporation (civilian aircraft) had crashed and caught fire while departing on runway 24 at RPLL. This aircraft was being used to transport COVID19 test kits and supplies around the Philippines.
As of now, all 8 passengers have passed away. R.I.P
Tragic. I hate to be that person but I think this goes against the rule in the #real-world-aviation guidelines where topics about crashes are not allowed. While I doubt this is in any violation of the COVID-19 article, it may be in conflict with the category guidelines.
I’ll let a moderator make that choice but here’s what I’m referencing;
As it is an unfortunate truth that there are many small aviation incidences on a daily basis. We ask that you refrain from posting about these on the forum. This is due to the volume of topics we would otherwise get that would clog up the forum and dilute productive discussion of other topics.
Sad. The world will definitely not forget the sacrifices they made, the noble role they tried to play in combating this pandemic. May they RIP! 🙏🏾
It’s weird that the people this community are supposed to look up to are just trying to suppress this topic. People have lost their lives, trying to help humanity. A bit of human compassion could go a long way. Sad!
