With air assets from the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing and the 505th Search and Rescue Group, the PAF's Tactical Operations Group 11 and Tactical Operations Wing Eastern Mindanao worked together with Joint Task Force Agila to bring relief efforts to remote areas.

The landslides and floods had made these areas inaccessible by ground transportation.
