The UNHAS chartered aircraft began operating earlier today after being assembled over the weekend. They will be used to transport humanitarian cargo and passengers to areas hardest hit by Typhoon Ketsana and Typhoon Parma.
Below are some photos of the unloading of the Mi-171's in Manila. We will post photos of the helicopters in action as soon as we receive them.
Special thanks to the WFP Aviation team for the photos and info!
