As the pontiff stood at the top of the plane’s steps after reaching Manila for his trip to the Philippines, his papal skullcap – called a zucchetto – blew away.

Francis walked down the plane’s steps hatless but smiling nonetheless. Later, his robe could be seen flapping over his face.

The pope laughed off the wardrobe malfunctions, greeting well-wishers and waving to crowds gathered to witness his motorcade.

He is visiting the Philippines, which is home to Asia’s largest Catholic population, following a trip to Sri Lanka and is slated to stay five days.
