I heard this loud roaring sound hovering too close for comfort. Then out of the blue, I saw this helicopter right above our roof. I thought it must be a VIP. I grabbed my camera and ran out to follow where it’s headed.
Army General Tamsi drops (literally) in Talakag plaza by helicopter (that is courtesy of Alvarez I was told). He was welcomed by Mayor-elect Vergito Factura. The plaza was surrounded by armed soldiers and Talakag’s own PNP and Rescue team, keeping the crowd in control. From what I gathered, the General (who's just been to see President-elect Rodrigo Duterte) was on his way to meet with the Muslim community of Talakag and relay a message of assurance that although they’re a minority, Duterte hasn't forgetten them. What a lovely gesture!
