This was one of the various editorial cartoons I drew last year in relation to plane/chopper crash accidents suffered by the Philippine Air Force (PAF). PAF is still using old planes which are derided as "widow makers." Officials were quick to defend that these aging planes/choppers are still in tip-top condition. Sigh. Well, maybe they are air-worthy yet but the fact remains, they are old. Or maybe younger than our 40-year old air cooled beetle, but I would ride in our beetle. It does not fly, anyway.
If the country is into a war, I don't know how to win that war with old and aging men of war.
Dictionary: "PAFTAY!" plays with the local term "patay" that means "dead" or colloquially "busted!"
Although my roots came from Cebu and settled for good in Davao during peace-time, I am a Davaoeño by birth. Davao City is one of the progressive cities in the Philippines. A cultural melting-pot of Mindanao. It is situated in southern part of the Philippines. If you want to know more about our beloved city, click here http://www.davaocity.gov.ph/
