Additional SF.260TP, converted from
SF.260MP?


Some 18 SF.260MP/WPs were originally to be upgraded to the
SF.260TP standard under Project Layang, with the first being delivered in
1996. However, it seems that the project eventually involved the conversion
of existing SF.260TPs from training to attack versions only and that some
seven or so were converted by 2002, with the first two examples being put
into service with 15th Strike Wing in Apr 2001. It is not known if the
serial number below is one of the upgraded aircraft, an additional new-build
aircraft or was simply mis-read.

In December 2004, the PAF is negotiating
lease terms with
Aerotech Industries Philippines for three SF260MZs
that Aerotech bought
from Zambia and completely rebuilt in 2003.

event, location, fate of crew


12.11.93


29-12 / 712 or


  29-02 / 702?

Engine quit in flight while
on a training mission from Fernando AB. After attempts to restart the engine
proved unsuccessful and the plane was already low on altitude, the pilot
tried to ditch the aircraft in Lake Taal. The water impact left the
instructor pilot, Maj. Roberto „Obet“ Ramos Pasion, commanding officer of
103rd Student Squadron, unconscious and still strapped into his seat as the
aircraft sank in deep water. He did not get out and was declared missing
presumed dead. His student, 2nd Lt. Lito Benitez, escaped safely.

(If the accident in Oct 1994 did not happen, then the
aircraft involved was most likely 29-02 / 702.)


17.12.93


15-10 / 610


Crashed soon after take-off from Fernando AB at
Mataas-na-Kahoy, Batangas City, killing instructor Capt. Glenn Julio and

29-13 / 713


After the engine quit over during touch-and-go at Fernando
AB, the crew tried to glide the plane down but failed to gain control as the
aircraft was caught by a gust while too close to the ground. Aviation Cadet
Rowena Q. Ayugan and instructor 2d Lt. Gilbert J. Marasiagan,  assigned to
100th Training Wing, sustained serious injuries.


23.04.98 or


  24.04.98?


29-09 / 709

29-18 / 718


While returning to Edwin Andrews AB from a mission with
another SF.260 to locate the ship MV Spirus with alleged contraband goods,
the plane developed engine problems and crashed at sea off Little Santa Cruz
island near Zamboanga City. Both crew, pilot Capt. Reynaldo Rueca and
co-pilot 1st Lt. Narcisco Ferrer, assigned to 3rd Tactical Operations Wing,
bailed out at 1,000ft altitude and were safely rescued.


12.12.02


29-11 / 711


Crashed through the roof of Ibiden Philippines computer
factory at the First Philippine Industrial Park in Brgy. Anastasia, Sto.
Tomas, Batangas, killing both crew members, pilot 1st Lt. Vincent Ramon F.
Ong and backseater 1st Lt. Delfin B. Francisco Jr., both assigned to 15th
Strike Wing, as well as a factory worker on the ground. Nine other workers
were injured. The aircraft was simulating engine failure during a
proficiency mission from Atienza AB. Following the accident, the 12
remaining SF.260s were grounded.
