Philippine Air Force Huey crash

On 16 January 2021, a Hukbong Himpapawid ng Pilipinas (HHP, Philippine Air Force) UH-1 Huey of the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing / 206th Tactical Helicopter Squadron Hornets, based at Edwin Andrews AiB, Zamboanga (Philippines) crashed at Sitio Nahigit, Barangay Bulonay in Impasugong town, Bukidnon (Philippines), just after 14:00 hrs (LT).

The Huey was on a resupply mission for the Army’s 403rd Brigade in Malaybalay, Bukidnon with five military personnel and two members of the local militial on board.

The pilots encountered engine trouble and were trying to save the helicopter and avoid crashing in a populated area. Sadly all on board did not survive the crash.

The serial reported was 517, of which we do not have any data. If there is someone out there with more info we would love to receive it!
