An American spy plane crashed early yesterday morning while trying to land at the Edwin Andrews Air Base in Zamboanga City.

Dennis Labacanacruz, a resident near the crash site along Sta. Maria road, disclosed that the incident happened before 5:00 a.m. when he saw the unmanned aircraft hit  several trees in the area then fell on the road.

Labacanacruz said that in a span of fifteen minutes, he saw eight American soldiers arrived at the scene and hurriedly carried the spy plane inside the Edwin Andrews Air Base (EAAB) where the Americans are staying.

“Ya mira yo una el spy plane ya man crash na gemelina acabar na papaya y despues na pono de nangka. Dol porma de auto man aquel,” Labacanacruz said.

Reports disclosed that some people tried to get video footages using their mobile phones but they were prevented by the US troops.

The spy plane landed near the Edwin Andrews Air Base in Sta. Maria, about 50 meters short of the runway of the Zamboanga City Airport.

Media personalities who went to the area failed to get any information from the Americans as they were already inside the air base facility.

It’s a known fact that the US troops are in the Philippines due to the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) and some of the foreign soldiers are still in Zamboanga City.

The Americans are assisting the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in its fight against terrorism by providing air intelligence with their unmanned air crafts. (Nonong Santiago)
