KDC-10 assisting Operation Serval
Monday 11 February - 16:26h | News & Press updates
Last Friday the first Dutch transport aircraft assisting the French lead “Operation Serval” in Mali took off from Eindhoven Air Base. Before reaching its final destination N’Djamena/Chad, where the French forces established a logistic hub, the KDC-10 stopped in France to pick up supplies. Due to the current security situation in Mali, the Dutch government decided to initially limit the KDC-10 operation to the neighbouring countries of Mali. When the situation has improved, the aircraft will also fly missions to Bamako, Mali’s capitol.
