Lt. Manuel Conde Airforce Base. 

The number of aircrafts suggest there's a VIP visiting the island. 


The airforce base shares the runway of Didicas Island International Airport. The small airbase is located on the north-eastern part of the airport.

The Airbase has three(3) large hangars for shelter, maintenance and repair of aircraft, another two (2) small hangars for helicopter can also be found. The airbase is also composed of the Headquarters office, Officer and Enlisted men housing unit, Supply store, Medical Dispensary and Military exchange store just across the street (beside Airforce MRT Station and Buddhist Park)


Lt Manuel Conde Airbase is the home of the 203rd Composite Tactical Operational Wing is tasked to perform Tactical Air operations within its assigned area of responsibility and to provide, operate and maintain base services at station/location. It has contributed extensively to the objectives of national security, maintenance of peace and order and the preservation of the environment.

The 203rd Composite Tactical Operation Wings doesnt have organic aircraft on the wing instead the aircraft are provide by other mother units such as the C130 and C295 (220th Airlift Wing), Bell 412, S70 and UH1H (207th Tactical Operation Squadron).
