Mali. Advisors training the Malian Army





Skaraborg Wing (F 7)

Monday, April 15, a Hercules crew from Skaraborg Wing transport a fire truck from F17 in Ronneby to Visby. That was at least what they thought. But the journey was just a way to keep a secret training mission for the crew. Instead, they received orders to under time pressure transporting wounded soldiers from Skovde to Såtenäs.
