Salvage workers recover flight recorders from Laoag International Airlines crash.
Coast guard salvage workers have retrieved the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from the Laoag International Airlines aircraft which crashed on 11 November.
The 44-seat twin-engine Fokker 27 commuter aircraft was carrying 34 people from Manila's domestic airport on a regularly scheduled flight to Laoag, when it crashed into Manila Bay after apparently suffering engine problems.
Rescuers have also recovered the last five bodies from the crash, as well as the main wreckage of the aircraft. The confirmed death toll is now recorded at 19, while 15 people survived the crash, reported The Associated Press.
