Laoag Flight 585 took off from Manila runway 31 at just after 6 o'clock for a flight to Laoag and Basco Airport (BSO). Shortly after takeoff engine trouble developed in the aircraft's left Rolls Royce Dart turboprop engine. The pilot declared an emergency and he reportedly tried to land the plane at the reclamation area but decided at the last minute to ditch it into the sea. The aircraft broke up and sank in the water to a depth of about 60 feet.
