220TH AIRLIFT WING DELIVERS NFA RICE TO ITBAYAT, BATANES

26 Sep 2018

Living by the 220th AW leadership's motto, AYUS (Always Your Unselfish Servants) the C-295 aircraft airlifts 60 sacks of NFA rice from Basco, Batanes to Itbayat, the northernmost town, whose residents had run out of the staple commodity. The prevailing unfavorable weather condition in the last two weeks prevented fresh supplies from being shipped by sea travel.

On August 28, 2018, the aircrew was able to perform three (3) shuttles to deliver the payload safely in spite of the deteriorating weather condition in the area; a risk that was carefully managed considering an already marginal runway in Itbayat.
