A PHILIPPINE Air Force C-130 plane with 122 people on board caught fire before taking off at the Clark Air Base in Pampanga on Wednesday, but no one was reported hurt. In a phone-patch interview with reporters, Air Force Spokesperson Major Aristides M. Galang said the pilot noticed the flames on the air craft and immediately aborted the take-off. Mr. Galang said the passengers included 115 students of the National Defense College of the Philippines who were on a trip to Palawan and the rest were crew members. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
