MANILA, Nov. 20 — One of the three Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" cargo aircraft being used by the Philippine Air Force (PAF) is now undergoing maintenance.

This was confirmed by PAF spokesperson Col. Miguel Ernesto Okol Wednesday.

"(The aircraft is undergoing) normal maintenance activities. It should be operational within a day or two," he added.

Okol stressed that no damage has been sustained by the aircraft, adding that it is normal for the latter to be taken out of the flight line every now and then for maintenance work.

The PAF's C-130s have been the aerial workhorse of the government in terms of mercy and relief flights in the "Yolanda" battered provinces in the Visayas Region.

Okol also declined to comment on reports that fuel stocks of the PAF are running out.

"There's no announcement on that yet," he added. (PNA)
