A Philippine Air Force UH-1 prepares to lift off from a simulated incident site during a mass casualty response drill as part of the current iteration of a rotational Air Contingent at Brigadier General Benito N Ebuen Air Base, Philippines Sept. 29, 2016. During the drill, civilian and military disaster response experts met together to exchange ideas and best practices. The Air Contingent is helping build the capacity of the Philippine Air Force and increases joint training, promotes interoperability and provides greater and more transparent air and maritime situational awareness to ensure safety for military and civilian activities in international waters and airspace. Its missions include air and maritime domain awareness, personnel recovery, combating piracy, and assuring access to the air and maritime domains in accordance with international law.
