Proving that he isn’t ‘maarte’ (nitpicky) at all, President Rodrigo Duterte joins the boodle fight with the airmen as they celebrate the anniversary of the 250th Presidential Air Wing of the Philippine Air Force in Villamor Air Base in Pasay City where he was the guest of honor.
The 250th PAW is special to the president as this is the team from the Air Force tasked to ensure a “safe, secure, and effective transportation” not just for the president but also to the immediate members of his family, VIPS, visiting heads of states, and other state guests.
Moreover, it seems that the president truly treats the airmen like family as he had also been a licensed pilot in his younger days.
At the 48th founding anniversary of the 250th PAW, the president gamely joined the boodle fight alongside the elite team’s officials and the rest of the airmen. Notably, the president wore a pilot jacket for the event.
