Descripción:
Air Manila Flight AM101 was a scheduled domestic flight from Manila to Legaspi. It took off from Manila International Airport at 15:05 hours . At 1640 hours it established initial contact with Legaspi Radio; reported 7 minutes north-west of the field and requested weather and landing information. Legaspi Radio reported a surface wind of 040 degrees at 8 kts, visibility 5 km, clouds 6 oktas at 450 metres, 8 oktas at 2100 metres, temperature 24°C, dewpoint 24°C and runway in use 06. At 1716 hours the flight inquired again about the present weather and the 1700 hours weather observation was passed to the aircraft. At 17:18 the flight was seen turning for a landing on runway 24. The landing roll was fast, tail wheel high at approximately 300 m after the threshold of runway 24 . Before the tail wheel came into contact with the runway full power was applied and the aircraft was observed airborne. At approximately 200 ft altitude, it initiated a tight left turn collided with the top of a tree and then hit a building located two miles southwest of Legaspi Airport.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board determined that the probable cause of this accident was a power stall during a tight turn manoeuvre at insufficiently low altitude where successful recovery was impossible."
