Well, the Manolos pilot himself reports they were airborne out of LAE within 30 minutes of the accident. They were called directly by NCA to respond. So I stand by what I said earlier.

PNGDF were also scrambled but their helicopter can't hover at 9,500' so the rescue effort was left to civilian resources.
