Tacloban: The Risen

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor Carlo Caacbay brings us this beautiful aerial video of Tacloban, a port city on the island of Leyte in the Philippines which was devasted by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.  Tacloban was already in the history books from an earlier event.  In October, 1944, USA General Douglas MacArthur famously waded ashore here following an amphibious invasion of Leyte, fulfilling his "I shall return" promise from the early months of World War II when a Japanese attack overwhelmed American forces in the Philippines.
