Helicopters Delivering Aid To Earthquake Victims
The US military has
announced as of November 3, flight crews manning the 24
helicopters providing aid to earthquake survivors in
Pakistan’s remote mountain ranges have flown more than 1,000
trips since beginning flight operations Oct. 11 -- and by now, the
number is likely closer to 1,200.
The flights are carrying relief supplies to victims of a
devastating earthquake last month.
The U.S. Army has 17 CH-47 Chinooks and three UH-60 Blackhawks
providing aid, while the U.S. Navy has two MH-53 Sea Stallions and
two MH-60 Knighthawks.
More than 3,200 injured Pakistanis have been evacuated to
medical facilities aboard U.S. military helicopters in the past 25
days, according to a military press release.
In addition, the amount of relief supplies delivered by US
military helicopters has totaled more than 4 million pounds.
