An Airbus Casa C-295W on delivery to the Philippines Air Force sporting military serial ‘204’ landed at LMML this afternoon for a night stop following its ferry flight from Seville (LEZL). This is the first airframe for the Philippines Air Force sporting performance-improving winglets, a feature that has become standard among the newly produced C-295s at the Airbus Military plant in Seville. The Philippines Air Force has already taken delivery of 3 standard medium transport C-295Ms, the latest of which was delivered in 2019. The C-295M will be used to transport personnel and equipment, as well as assist the armed forces for disaster relief and humanitarian assistance efforts. This particular aircraft C-295W will also be used for maritime patrol purposes.
