MANILA, Oct. 6 (PNA) --- The Philippine Air Force (PAF)'s 5th Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" cargo aircraft, which was acquired through the US Excess Defense Articles Program, will arrive at the Benito Ebuen Air Base, Mactan, Cebu on Sunday, according to PAF spokesperson Col. Antonio Francisco

"(The fifth C-130) took off this morning from Tucson, Arizona (Davis-Monthan Air Base). The aircraft is expected to arrive in Mactan Sunday," Francisco said in a message to the PNA Thursday.

The PAF's fifth C-130 as well as the fourth belong to the "T" model of the class and original configured as a airborne tanker.

The fourth C-130 arrived in Benito Ebuen Airbase, Mactan, Cebu last April 5.

It was flown by Filipino pilots Col. Alejando Baclayon (head), Lt. Col. Ian Earth Lamzon, Major Ian Dexter Danes, Major Anthony Amora, and Major Ramil Daet.

The two C-130Ts are worth USD61 million and were acquired through the US Excess Defense Article Program.

Francisco said the additional C-130s will boost the PAF's transport and logistic capabilities.

Aside from the four C-130s, the PAF has three Airbus Military C-295 medium and three Fokker F-27 transports for its logistics and lift missions. (PNA)

PAF's 5th C-130 arrives in Benito Ebuen Air Base, Mactan

MANILA, Oct. 10 (PNA) --- The Philippine Air Force (PAF)'s fifth Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" heavy-lift transport aircraft arrived at the Benito Ebuen Air Base, Mactan, Cebu Sunday night.

The airplane, with tail number 5040, arrived at the military facility at 7:56 p.m., PAF spokesperson Col. Antonio Francisco said in a message to the PNA.

The C-130 aircraft took off from Guam's Andersen Air Base at 2: 50 p.m. for the final leg of its flight to the Philippines.

Francisco also released the names of the personnel who flew the aircraft to Mactan.

They are Lt. Col. Joey Inacay, mission commander; Lt. Col. Jason Rom Lacida, aircraft commander; Major Anthony Amora, test pilot and pilot-in-command; Major Meritto Jay Quijano, pilot-in-command; Major Marjorie Mukay, pilot-in-command and Major Ronel Salas, pilot.

The PAF spokesperson also said that Mukay is the first female to be certified as a pilot-in-command of a C-130.

”Please take note that Major Mukay, the other pilot-in-command, is the first female pilot to be checked out as pilot-in-command of a C-130 aircraft,” Francisco said.

The PAF’s fifth C-130 , which was acquired through the US Excess Defense Articles Program, took off from Tucson, Arizona (Davis-Monthan Air Base) last October 6 (American time).

The Air Force’s fifth C-130 as well as the fourth belong to the "T" model of the class and original configured as a airborne tanker.

Philippine Air Force chief Lt. Gen. Edgar Fallorina said the latest acquisition "reaffirms the strong partnership between our two countries."

US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg, meanwhile, said the C130 planes symbolize the strength of the partnership between the Philippines and the United States.

The turnover of the US aircraft comes amid Duterte’s tense rhetoric against the US, the Philippines’ long-time ally.

The newly turned over C-130 cargo plane to the Philippine Air Force was flown to the country from the United States with a female pilot-in-command, a first time in the history of the Philippine military.

“I would like to commend the Air Force who flew the aircraft from Tuscon, Arizona all the way to the Philippines. I heard this marked the first time that a woman pilot-in-command of Philippine C-130 flew a trans-Pacific flight. Congratulations to you [Major] Marjorie Mukay, your achievement represents yet another milestone, another step together, another step forward in our long friendship,” outgoing US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg said at the turnover ceremony for the C-130 at the Villamor Air Base on Monday.
