Aermacchi SF260F's over Cebu

I woke up this Morning to the sound of multiple propeller driven aircraft flying overhead. To my surprise I looked up and saw the entire contingent of 11-12 Aermacchi SF 260f's flying in a dual formation over Mactan airbase. This was reminiscent of a squadron of WWII fighters flying over, albiet a higher pitch engine sound from the multiple Lycoming O-540 powerplants. I can guess they are part of the announced military maneuvers in response to China's movements in the nearby Philippine territory.
