Operation Pakistan Assist II

24 Aug 2010

The first contingent of the 92 Air Force personnel deploying under Operation Pakistan Assist II flew into Multan in the Punjab. In July 2010 central Pakistan was devastated by the worst flooding in that nation's history, leaving 2000 dead and 21 million in need of humanitarian assistance. Australia responded to the crisis by sending Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft with aid, personnel and equipment.
