Air Force support to flood ravaged North Queensland (0.50 mins)

The Australian Defence Force assisted Coles and Woolworths supermarkets in the delivery of urgently needed fresh product and household items to flood ravaged North Queensland. Due to these extreme weather conditions and unprecedented rainfall, it was difficult for the road and rail movement of groceries. Approximately 70 tonnes of produce and essential items were loaded and flown from RAAF Amberley in Brisbane to Townsville via Air Movements personnel and three Royal Australian Air Force C-17A Globemaster aircraft to replenish stores in areas with exhausted stock.
