Abandoned aircraft up for auction

Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on Tuesday said that 12 aircraft that are left unattended at the General Aviation area of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport will be auctioned off to clear the area.

MIAA General Manager Jose Angel Honrado said the vintage planes must be removed within 30 days or the owners will be charged P31.54 per square meter every month.

“Our primary purpose is to clear the aviation area of these junk aircraft so we can use the area for other purposes,” he said. “We don’t want GenAv to be a dump.”

Ma.Perla Dumo, MIAA legal division head said “if no one claims or we will place them into  auction”.

The list of abandoned aircraft includes five McDonnell Douglas DC-9s with the last known registered owner as Orion; Antonov AN-26B, reportedly owned by Mosphil Aero; three McDonnell DC-3s, owned by Gemino Pilapil, Jacob S. Lim, and Max Manning, respectively; Cessna 150, owned by Fredelito Juane; Grumman America AA-IA Yankee; and a Super Constellation, owned by William Crawford.
