"At least" 17 killed of 92 on board.

Delfin Lorenzana said around 40 others were rescued from the burning wreckage of the C-130 aircraft in Bangkal village in the mountainous town of Patikul in southern Sulu province.

Pretty heavily loaded Herc . . . . I've seen more pax but not much more.

Curious about "missed the runway". Pretty ambiguous. Missed how? Looks like a clear day (new source photo).

That`s a lot of people in a Herc, reports of dead seem to vary between 15 and 50.
