A Philippine Army truck filled with relief supplies rode by while a Japanese C130 cargo plane sits on the tarmac of Tacloban Airport ready to transport evacuees to Manila 12 days after super typhoon Haiyan devastated Eastern Visayas in Central Philippines.

On the background, US Marine's V22 Ospreys has been ferrying relief goods between here to the town of Guiuan in Eastern Samar where the typhoon initially made landfall.

MH60 Seahawk choppers were also making rounds and air-dropping food and water to places hard to reached by land in what appears to be the single largest international humanitarian operation in the Philippines after WWII.
