In Nov 2000, 99 Squadron was reformed to operate the C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, which has become an essential component of the UK Strategic Airlift requirement. With its highly capable fleet of C17s, 99 Squadron has been involved in a variety of roles including Specialist Aeromedical Evacuation, Repatriations and Humanitarian Relief.
This talk will cover the role of the C17 aircraft and 99 Squadron in Aeromedical Evacuation.
