A Douglas DC8-72-CF carrying medical supplies for 22 hospitals in Nepal is sent by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian humanitarian relief group. The DC-8 with the registration N782SP has reportedly departed Greensboro, North Carolina, early Monday morning (June 7), carrying over 15 tons of humanitarian aid, including masks, PPE, and medical gear.
The Samaritan’s Purse stated These vital materials would be provided to 22 hospitals, including United Mission Hospital Tansen, a Nepalese partner hospital, to assist healthcare workers who are already overburdened by the latest wave of coronavirus infections.
The flight should require more than 18 hours of journey to travel from Piedmont Triad Intl Airport to Glasgow Prestwick Int’l Airport to Tbilisi Int’l Airport and then to Kathmandu.
The plane is expected to arrive in Kathmandu at 13:25 (Local Time) from Georgia and leave at 17:20 today.
