Sad report… DC-3 Down

From BBC news comes this report:

“Officials say the DC-3 plane scraped the roofs of 14 houses in Manila before crashing into an abandoned warehouse and bursting into flames.

No-one was reported injured on the ground but residents said two houses close to the warehouse caught fire. “
