PROBLEM: In May 2015 United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) required delivery of three MD-500E helicopters from San Salvador to Bamako provided by El Salvadorian Air Force.
SOLUTION: While transportation of these helicopters with AN-124 freighter would have been an easy but very expensive option, our team of experts at MAG Logistics were able to develop a budget solution by loading all helicopters into Boeing 747F aircraft with certain minimum modifications.
RESULTS: MAG cargo manager accompanied the flight to ensure the helicopters were delivered on time for immediate deployment as medevacs for troops and the local population, among other purposes. These helicopters are best for the harsh desert climate of northern Mali.
