Air-Lifters Fly Young Athletes Back Home

11 May 2017

The Philippine Air Force 220th AW with the use of C-295 Aircraft led by MAJ VIC ROBLES PAF provided a free ride home to young football players who participated in the recently concluded Football for Peace 2017 Competition held in Manila last May 09, 2017. Most of the players were from the Southern Province.

This annual activity is promoting the shared belief of building the skills of our young people to become responsible, productive and peace-loving citizens. One of the team organizers believe that through sports, kids in this generation would easily learn the true value of sportsmanship, camaraderie and discipline.

To be a part of a remarkable event is truly uplifting for the air-lifters, the piloting skills and expertise given to the aircrew to extend a hand to people in need will always be number one on their list.
