"Doon pa lang sa unang aksidente, talagang gumagawa na tayo ng hakbang [From the first accident, we already took steps] to review the airworthiness of our assets, as well as the competency of our pilots and crew. At the same time, we also did a thorough review of our safety procedures," he added.

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) has already figured in four deadly air incidents seven months into 2021. The Huey chopper crash in Bukidnon in January left seven people dead and the accident involving the MG520 attack helicopter in Bohol killed a pilot in April.

Two newly acquired aircraft also crashed, killing dozens of soldiers and civilians. A combat utility helicopter delivered in the country in December 2020 crashed in Tarlac in June — killing all six crew members. The C-130 plane involved in the accident that claimed the lives of 53 people on Sunday was turned over by the United States in February.

Sobejana said he reiterated his instruction to the PAF to review maintenance procedures and to ensure all aircraft are airworthy.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Wednesday said the crash of the C-130 plane in Sulu was due to the defective instruments of the aircraft and the inappropriate reaction of the pilot.

“One, for the C-130, is defective instruments or systems. Plus, of course, the reaction of the pilot was not also appropriate for the emergency, so nag-crash,” he added.

Last Nov. 5, the TOG SULTAW, TOW WestMin in partnership with JTF Sulu, PDRRMO Sulu, and 505th Search and Rescue Group, facilitated the closing ceremony of Search and Rescue Auxiliary Training (SARAT) CL 01-2021 with class name, “Tausug Heroes.”

The Philippine Air Force thanked the Tausug villagers by training them, and making them full-fledged rescuers and first responders.

The activity, held at Sumadja Hall, Capitol Complex, Brgy Bangkal, Patikul, Sulu saw 50 students from different municipalities in Sulu, PDRRMO, Joint Task Force Sulu and TOG SULTAW complete the 16-days rigid training.

The class “Tausug Heroes” was declared graduates by Col. Dennis Estrella, PAF (GSC), wing commander, of the TOW WestMin, and are now qualified to perform Search and Rescue (SAR) duties. They are now already full-pledged and well-trained first responders/rescuers.

The graduates each received a certificate of completion, SAR badge, and SAR personal protective equipment (PPE) composed of sweat shirt, utility rope, gloves, snap link and whistle, and the deserving students received special awards (Best in Swimming, Best in Rappelling, Best in Ropemanship, and Best in Academics).
