Description : ICRC bulletin 18/11/05 : The MI26 is the largest existing helicopter and can carry up to 15 tonnes of freight, several times more than other models.
The Russian crew flew their first rotations on 17 November to the village of Rahimkot - high in the mountains south-east of Muzaffarabad - to deliver shelter material that is being distributed with the help of 24 volunteers from the Pakistan Red Crescent Society. On its flights back to Muzaffarabad, the MI26 evacuated a baby and a young girl to the ICRC hospital.
