US Relief Flights In Pakistan Top 1,000

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.
