Ten months after delivery from Poland in February, and only weeks after the second-batch of two units arrived at Clark AFB, the Sokols have been deployed to their first high profile mission in COMPOSTELA Valley in support of relief operations in the wake of typhoon Pablo. The following screen capture from an ABS-CBN report shows two W-3As deployed, indicating satisfactory completion of the testing phase of the aircraft service career in the Philippine Air Force. The helicopters are first visible at time index 00:29 of the video.
