On Monday, police in Calamba City, Laguna, recovered the black box and turned over the audio recording to the air crash investigation division of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap).
City police chief Lt Col Jacinto Malinao said investigators retrieved parts of the Beechcraft King Air type in four different locations in Barangay Pansol, indicating that the plane had disintegrated in midair.
The Caap would then take over the investigation, which its spokesperson, Eric Apolonio, said might take a while.
He said that reconstructing the aircraft would be a “tedious” process. — Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN
