TANAY, Rizal - Air Force officials on Friday arrived at Sitio Hilltop in Barangay Sampaloc to help process the crash site of the helicopter that went down Thursday.

Three Air Force personnel were killed while one was injured after a Huey helicopter crashed while preparing to land on an open space in the area.

Officials have earlier denied that the helicopter involved in the accident was not airworthy.

"We make sure that when we fly our choppers, they are all air worthy," Col. Antonio Francisco, Philippine Air Force spokesperson, earlier said.
