  1. The effort of CAAP in the rehabilitation of Tacloban airport runway is shameful. After nearly 2 years after Yolanda. Maybe it’s better to get the Chinese to do the work, they managed to reclaim,construct the 5000 meters runway at the South China sea complete with nav lights,radars and other support facilities. The island they created is more than 6000 kms from the Chinese mainland and here we are in Tacloban with our DOTC struggling to rehabilitate the runway. Is this not enough proof of more ineptitude of pabaya and abnoy?
