Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana today led Philippine Air Force (PAF) officials during the groundbreaking ceremony for the Billeting Facilities of the 15th Strike Wing Airbase at Lumbia Airport, Cagayan de Oro City.
The activity formally starts the construction of the facilities necessary for the transfer of the 15th Strike Wing which is currently stationed at Sangley Point in Cavite. The 15th Strike Wing is considered the primary attack unit of the PAF. The transfer also coincides with the government’s efforts to decongest air space in the National Capital Region. see scaled model below.
