VIDEO: “There were no injuries and all passengers safely evacuated the aircraft" - Management confirms after a Korean Air A330 crash-landed at Cebu International Airport during heavy rain

The Korean Air flight KE631 overshot the runway at Cebu International Airport after attempting to land twice due to poor visibility and heavy rain. (Read More Here).

Flights to Cebu International Airport are returning to their origin or are diverting to Francisco Bangoy International Airport.

Unfortunately weather conditions in Cebu weren’t great on Sunday evening, between heavy rain and poor visibility. The plane ended up attempting to land twice, under 15 minutes apart, but the pilots decided to perform a go around each time, as they weren’t able to land safely.

Given the bad conditions, at this point the plane entered a holding pattern, clearly in hopes of conditions improving. Just around 40 minutes after the previous landing attempt, the pilots attempted a third landing. Given that the flight was already an hour longer than usual, I can’t help but wonder what their fuel reserves were like at this point.

Images of the plane show substantial damage, with what looks like some pretty big rips. It also looks like the front nose gear collapsed, based on the angle at which the plane came to a stop.

It seems pretty likely that the plane will never fly again (especially given how old it already was), though the much more important question is if all passengers managed to get off the plane.
