MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in Western Visayas is hopeful that the six remaining missing persons from Saturday’s capsizing of three boats in the Iloilo Strait survived. Yesterday, the Philippine Air Force (PAF) deployed a Bell UH-1 “Super Huey” to conduct aerial-search operations over the Iloilo Strait, the body of water separating this city from the island province of Guimaras. The helicopter, with tail number 890 and carrying para-rescue personnel from the Air Force’s 505th Search-and-Rescue Group, operated alongside the coastguard and the Philippine Navy, said Major Aristides Galang, PAF spokesperson.
