Weekends are not a reason to reach out to those in need as Tactical Operations Group 6, Philippine Air Force performed base operations functions and facilitated medical evacuation flight of 505th Search and Rescue Group together with S7 team which is comprised of flight surgeon, flight nurse, and medical aid from the Philippine Air Force General Hospital.

The 505th SRG's Super Huey II was utilized to pick up patient Eden Grace Layague from Silay Airport, Negros Occidental to Cabatuan Airport, Iloilo and was transferred to S76 Sikorsky helicopter bound for Colonel Jesus Villamor Air Base (CJVAB), Pasay City for immediate medical treatment.

On that same day, another medical evacuation mission was conducted at Kalibo Airport. The 505th SRG together with the S7 team transported patient PLTC Carlos Falkurin Gadapan PNP (Ret) from Kalibo Airport to CJVAB, Pasay City for medical treatment via a SOKOL aircraft.

Patients have mixed emotions during the mission but you can see a glare of hope in their eyes, surrounded by living angels from PAF saving their lives.
