The C-130 Hercules transport aircraft of the Philippine Air Force with 85 servicemen on board crashed a few kilometers from the Jolo Airport in Sulu Province at 11: 30 local time on June 4. 


At least 29 soldiers were killed as a result of the accident. 40 soldiers were found injured and were taken to the hospital of the 11th Infantry Division in Busbus.


Most of the passengers had recently graduated recently from basic military training and were being deployed as part of a joint taskforce fighting terrorism in the Muslim-majority region.


The chief of the armed forces, Gen Cirilito Sobejana, said the aircraft had been carrying troops from Cagayan de Oro on the southern island of Mindanao when it missed the runway as it tried to land on Jolo.
