RAAF C-27J in Aussie Disaster Relief


On 9th February 2019, No. 35 Squadron from RAAF Base Amberley was called in to start supporting the North Queensland flood relief effort from Mount Isa. 

Two Royal Australian Air Force C-27J Spartan aircraft and crew worked with the Australian Army’s 9th Force Support Battalion to deliver urgent aircraft fuel for civilian helicopters to drop fodder and hay to livestock and farmers in the isolated Richmond and Julia Creek areas.
