The Philippine Air Force will be participating in the celebrations for the 80th Araw ng Dabaw. On March 16, 1936, congressman Romualdo Quimpo from Davao filed Bill 609 (passed as Commonwealth Act 51), creating the City of Davao from the Town of Davao (Mayo) and Guianga District.
The Air Force will be sending its newly acquired FA-50PHs “Fighting Eagles” for the celebrations.
FA-50PHs will be conducting high speed, low pass during the Davao Civic Military Parade on March 16 between 9am to 12pm.
According to Air Force, FA-50PHs’ participation will “show the general public that these new air assets are vital in strengthening the country’s territorial borders.”
“It will also be a great avenue to train our pilots and allow them to be acquainted with the various aspects in flight missions such as the country’s different terrains, weather, and possible areas of interest,” the Air Force added.
The Air Force now has 6 Fighting Eagles, with 6 more scheduled for delivery this year.
