Honor Guard

Aquino Casket and Honor Guard

On August 5, we bade goodbye to a remarkable woman named Corazon Aquino. Before she emerged as the first female president of the Philippines and the first female president in Asia after the 1986 People Power Revolution which saw the overthrow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos, “Cory” was a housewife and widow of the assassinated Senator Benigno Aquino.

While her presidency may have had its share of problems as well as triumphs, Aquino showed the world and, in particular, a nation that a people united can achieve great things.

She died on August 1, following a losing battle with colon cancer. On August 5, her body was brought from the Manila Cathedral to her resting place beside her husband Ninoy at the Aquino family mausoleum at Manila Memorial Park. The funeral procession took almost eight hours, with hundreds of thousands of Filipinos crowding the entire route to say a final farewell.

Here are a few 3D scenes taken along the South Superhighway as we waited for the funeral cortege to pass by.
