The photo of the plane was taken as it overflew Corregidor recently, “buzzing” the island. We’ve been told that it is a Vietnam-War-era Bronco, used as a trainer by the Philippine Air Force.
"Bronco" flying over Corregidor
Between the buzzing Bronco and the booms from dynamite fishing, sometimes we have had a very tiny taste of life on Corregidor in late 1941 and early ’42. In the past couple weeks we have noted a decrease in the booms, which leads us to hope that efforts by those responsible for enforcement of anti-illegal fishing laws are being successful.
