Malaysian C-130 too.  Saw it load an M-35 (or were there two?) and lots of personnel, civilians included.  Villamor Air Base March, 2007

Sir Jepot ... I think the MALPHI SAR exercises came first?

Why is the Philippine flag hoisted in one of the corvettes? Is it naval protocol for a visiting ship?

^ the Laksamana class corvettes were built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the Iraqi Navy (Wadi M'ragh class corvettes). however, sanctions placed against Iraq as a result of its invasion of Kuwait caused the cancellation of the said corvettes to Iraq. the corvettes stayed in Italy for quite some time until the Malaysians bought them in 1997.

sadly, Fincantieri is not building the Wadi M'ragh anymore and the last two Wadi M'raghs moored in the Italian port of La Spezia (both of which are helicopter-capable) have been delivered to the new Iraqi Navy.

if we were only fast enough to buy those Wadi M'raghs from Italy, we could have had them, along with the British Peacock class OPVs, as our navy's most modern assets.

I really miss those days when one can easily go to the ports and come up close to foreign military ships visiting our ports.  Sometimes you can get lucky and you can be shown the inside of these visiting vessels.  The one I surely can't forget was the British Carrier the Invinsible.  We just went to look at it and some friendly Brit sailor showed us in!!! I took so much pictures!!! Damn!!! sarap.  I have seen Malaysian, Thai, German, U.S., Indian, Italian and so much more warships.  But thanks to these world wide terrorists!!! security was never the same, specially after that USS Cole attack.  Pucha talaga.... end of those happy days..  Thanks Jepot for sharing the photos... Galing!!!
