The Army’s 3rd Infantry Division accorded the late Air Force Maj. Eraño Belen with military honors when his remains arrived at the Bacolod-Silay Airport in Silay City, Negros Occidental yesterday.

The remains of Belen, a native of Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental, was flown in by an Air Force C-130 cargo plane.

Belen, valedictorian of the Philippine Military Academy Class 2010, and his wife live in Brgy. Alijis, Bacolod City.

He was among the six fatalities when a newly-acquired Philippine Air Force Black Hawk combat utility helicopter crashed during a night flight training in Capas town, Tarlac on June 23.

Belen will be buried on July 4 at the Heaven’s Gate Memorial Gardens in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, Maj. Cenon Pancito, 3rd Infantry Division spokesperson, said.*
