He also took the opportunity to thank the 3rd Air Division headed by its commander Maj. Gen. Jose Tony E. Villarete and the 530th Wing under Maj. Gen. Emeraldo Magnaye for always supporting the activities of the city government, especially allowing the use of helicopters for flower-drop and aerial surveys of Zamboanga’s important spots.
