The events of Saturday have temporarily overshadowed news of the conflict in Ukraine. However, we must report that on Saturday, October 7, an Italian Air Force Boeing KC-767A (reg. MM62228) operated two flights between Pratica di Mare Air Base in Italy and Rzeszow, Poland.
The exact nature of the cargo on board the aircraft is unknown, but it is likely that it included military aid for Ukraine. Italy has been a strong supporter of Ukraine in its ongoing war with Russia, and has provided several millions of euros in military and humanitarian aid.
The flight of the KC-767A is a further indication of Italy’s commitment to supporting Ukraine. The aircraft is a large cargo aircraft that is capable of carrying up to 70 tons of cargo.
