  Conductor Getting Off
by D._Pepper

With more than 7,000 islands, flying into the smaller ones requires taking smaller planes. Many times, the smaller planes offer the most direct flights to locations like Boracay or Baguio, or even Batanes. And when I say small, I mean - smaller than a bus.

This is a 17-seater Asian Spirit plane (LET 410 Czech plane) that I took to Caticlan to get to Boracay. Two engines, one pilot, and no flight attendant. But fun!
