The Naval Air Wing held a book launching for the book “C90 King Air Juan’s Wing Plus” authored by Captain Juario C Marayag at Headquarters NAW on August 20, 2019.
The book is an account of the experiences of NAW personnel during their training and the story behind the Navy’s Beechcraft King Air C90. It recounts how the aircraft was acquired from Japan and transferred to the Philippine Navy. It includes personal stories of the pilots and crew during their training in Japan and their appreciation of their cultural immersion in the country.
True enough, the C90 story will provide its readers valuable insight on how the NAG from its small beginnings becomes the NAW of today, ready to achieve greater heights.
The event coincides with the activation and blessing ceremony of NV395, the Fifth C90 Aircraft donated by Japan presided by the Commander Philippine Fleet Rear Admiral Giovanni Carlo J Bacordo as principal Sponsor and Guest of Honor.
Also present in the occasion were the former Flag Officers In Command, Philippine Navy Vice Admiral Jose Luis M Alano (Ret) and Vice Admiral Jesus C Millan (Ret); the King Sea Eagles of the Naval Air Group and the Assistant Defense Armed Forces Attaché of Japan to the Philippines CDR MICHINORI FUKUDA JMSDF.
