From NATO: The Multinational Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) conducted a humanitarian relief mission to Haiti on 16 January 2010 delivering first-aid kits and supplies to help Haiti, whose capital Port-au-Prince has been devastated in a massive earthquake.

This the first humanitarian assistance flight by SAC’s operational arm, the Heavy Airlift Wing based in Pápa Air Base in Hungary. The HAW has flown operational missions, including flights to support Kosovo Forces and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), but the mission to Haiti is an important milestone for the SAC program…”

“The first mission is requested by Sweden, but there is also aid from Norway, Denmark, Finland and Estonia onboard. The multinational crewmembers are eager to get the mission going and the colleagues in Pápa are working hard with the preparations”, Colonel [Fredrik] Hedén points out. (photo: NATO)
