A Royal New Zealand Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft has landed at Port Vila airport in Vanuatu with a further consignment of aid in the wake of Tropical Cyclone Pam.
The load includes chainsaw packs, generators, and supplies for shelters. The Vanuatu Government will allocate how the supplies are to be distributed.
After its Port Vila stop the aircraft is continuing to the island of Tanna, about 230km from the main island, Efate, with Vanuatuan Prime Minister Joe Natuman on board. It will take Mr Natuman back to Port Vila before returning to New Zealand tonight.
