Retrievers had brought the corpses of the pilot and five passengers of the ill-fated Cessna 206 plane in the Divilacan proper on Sunday, March 12.
The bodies will be transported to Cauayan City Airport using Philippine Air Force (PAF) choppers from Divilican.
However, this might be delayed due to bad weather and will proceed on Monday, March 13.
The search and rescue team located the crash site in the mountainous area of Barangay Ditarum in Isabela last Thursday, March 9.
From search and rescue, the operations turned to retrieval after the responders discovered the lifeless bodies of Captain Eleazar Mark Joven and passengers Josefa Perla Espana, Val Kamatoy, Mark Eiron Siguerra, and two boys.
In their estimate, Isabela Incident Management Team (IMT) Commander Atty. Constante Foronda Jr. said it might take three days to recover the six bodies.
Unfortunately, the continuous downpour and steep slope of the Sierra Madre mountains have caused delays to the mission.
Cessna 206 went missing last January 24 after departing from Cauayan Domestic Airport.
