    On March 17, 1957 a plane carrying Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay crashed in Cebu, shortly before the conclusion of his first term. Magsaysay was eligible to run for a second term and at the time was popular with a clean, well-run populist administration that was modernizing the country but also cozy with the USA in the early Cold War.

    How would Philippine history have been different if Magsaysay survives that crash?
