Flight 387 Shrine

What was remembered as a place of death and tragedy on a mountainous area in Misamis Oriental is now becoming a thriving tourist destination after the provincial government converted a parcel of land near the Cebu Pacific Flight 5J387 crash site into a tourism complex and botanical garden.

The tourist destination is situated a few kilometers from the crash site on the slopes of the Mt. Sumagaya mountain range that borders Gingoog City and Claveria town.

The accident is considered one of the worst air disasters in the Philippines.

The Cebu Pacific airplane, a McDonell Douglas DC-9-32, bound for Cagayan de Oro from Manila, crashed into the mountain, killing all the 99 passengers and five flight crew on Feb. 2, 1998.

A 20-foot memorial shrine, dedicated to those who perished in the tragic event and erected about 20 years ago, is located within the complex. (Source)
