PAMPANGA, Republic of the Philippines -- Armed Forces of the Philippines members and U.S. Marines conducted bilateral aircraft rescue and firefighting training during Amphibious Landing Exercise 2014 Sept. 26 at Clark Air Field, Pampanga, Republic of the Philippines.

PHIBLEX 14 is an annual, bilateral training exercise focused on enhancing security and stability within the region.

The day of training involved U.S. Marines with Marine Wing Support Squadron 172, Marine Wing Support Group 17, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.

The training was designed to increase the already high level of interoperability between Philippine and U.S. forces.

“We are going to be conducting some bilateral training with our Filipino counterparts involving the F/A-18 Hornet,” said Sgt. Devon McIntyre, the aircraft rescue and firefighting training noncommissioned officer in charge with MWSS-172. “We will be covering all the major areas of emergencies, so (we all) understand the complexity of this should it really happen.”

The training started out with a familiarization class consisting of emergency procedures on how to extract a pilot and shut a plane down, according to McIntyre.

“The whole point of today is to ensure that our Filipino counterparts fully understand the rescue procedures that we have,” said U.S. Marine Cpl. Heriberto Alonso, an aircraft rescue firefighter with the unit. “Therefore, if there is an emergency situation, we can effectively help each other to overcome the problem in order for no miscommunication to take place along the way.”

Upon completion of the instruction, the participants conducted a pilot extraction drill, consisting of a pilot’s mock evacuation from an F/A-18. The members of both forces evacuated the pilot and conducted a mental evaluation, creating a realistic training experience.

“Upon extraction, we want to test the pilot’s mental psyche in order to ensure he has no serious head trauma caused by the mishap,” said McIntyre. “The entire assessment process could take up to 30 minutes.”

The evolution left the participants of both nations confident in the training they received, according to Philippine Air Force Airman 2nd Class Kennard I. Gomez, an air rescue firefighter with the 600th Air Base Wing.

“This training is highly beneficial for the Philippine forces and gives us a huge advantage should a mishap take place,” said Gomez. “I feel that both of our countries can benefit from what we are doing here.”
Working cooperatively and ensuring interoperability with the Armed Forces of the Philippines is highly important, according to McIntyre.

“I feel that because of this training, the Philippine forces will be fully confident and capable of carrying out the extraction of a pilot who is in an emergency situation,” said McIntyre. “It is important for us to spread the knowledge we have, as well as to pick up new things from them. We are always very happy to train with the Armed Forces of the Philippines.”

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    suggestions or hints? Thanks!

    know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different
    browsers and both show the same results.

    These materials affect indoor air by outgassing'significantly for the first six months and
    then to a lesser degree for years. Financial investigations also look after matters
    of insurance forgery or bribery through detailed checking of
    the documents pertaining to your particular case. Figure out by deciding upon it to your property or garden and
    reap the rewards for a long time to come.

    You can view the latest weather updates through taking a look
    at your phone's home screen, where it automatically posts
    weather info, and all without having to launch the application.
    s no secret that illegal file sharing is
    still rampant in numerous countries, such as the US, however, may possibly not
    be government interference that eventually leads to
    the end of the age of illegal downloads. Trading invites a variety of sites is highly frowned upon inside the exclusive Bit
    - Torrent community because it allows anti-piracy groups to
    infiltrate private trackers with less effort.

    I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.

    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more
    useful than ever before.

    Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It truly
    useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid others

  • Giroux 140 days ago
    I think everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, think on this, what if you typed a catchier title?
    I am not suggesting your information isn't good, but what if you added a title to possibly grab a person's attention?
    I mean Marine Corps Installations Pacific >News Center >News Article Display is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they create
    article headlines to grab people interested. You might try adding a video
    or a pic or two to get readers excited about what
    you've written. In my opinion, it could make your
    posts a little livelier.

    I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy
    a post on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the

    And after this article Marine Corps Installations Pacific >News Center >News Article Display.

    I was actually moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response ;-) I do have a couple of questions
    for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like like a few of these remarks come across like coming from brain dead visitors?
