Cordillera - Philippine Air Force (PAF) pilots of the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing strategically landed PH's most advance helicopter, the Blackhawk in a narrow road to be able to drop off relief supplies to residents living in a remote village in Abra after the onset of the devastating Luzon earthquake. 

The Black Hawk helicopters are the new assets of the PAF that were delivered last year from the Polish aerospace manufacturer.

During these critical times, the Black hawks are very effective in delivering relief supplies and rescue personnel in geographically remote areas of the country.

Since the onset of the Abra earthquake, the pilots and crew of the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing of the Philippine Air Force have not ceased delivering relief for the people. 

On July 31, 2022, the aircrew of the Hueys and Black Hawks continue to conduct Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Operations (HADR). 

Ferrying hundreds of relief boxes by flying back and forth, a profound sense of satisfaction and fulfillment is felt in the hearts of every pilot and crew who flew in the affected province, knowing that help is delivered.
