The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNAF) brought up their P-3, C-130, two (2) B-757-200 to Manila and Clark last April 8 – May 9, 2009. Part of the visit was the RNAF’s participation in the ASEAN Regional Forum Voluntary Demonstration of Response on Disaster Relief (ARF-VDR) held at Clark Field, Pampanga. During the exercise the RNAF showed their aviation might in transporting more than 100 passengers, from their visiting countries to Clark, Manila, and back.
All FBO and Ground Handling services both in Manila and Clark were provided by Ages Aviation Center, Inc. with the guidance of the New Zealand Defense Attaché Office of Manila. Ages again showed its flexibility with the ever changing schedule and weather constraints that were then troubling the country.
