RNZAF Aid Flights Continue

Ex-Tropical Cyclone Pam left a path of destruction in Vanuatu. Royal New Zealand Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft have been carrying essential aid to Vanuatu, along with specialist personnel from various agencies and an Air Force aero-medical evacuation team. On the return journeys from Vanuatu the Hercules have been bringing back evacuees from the cyclone-ravaged country on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to reduce any backlog in travel by commercial carrier when flights resume.
