On January 11, 2003, the Air Wing of the Pakistani Ministry of the Interior responded to a call for emergency humanitarian assistance by flying two helicopters to the remote site of a truck accident and evacuating eleven severely injured Frontier Corps members. The Air Wing's quick and professional response undoubtedly saved lives.

This emergency humanitarian mission was flown using two of five INL-owned UH-1 "Huey-II" helicopters that arrived in Pakistan in July 2002 via a USAF C-5A cargo aircraft. The Huey-II helos are provided to support the Pakistan Border Security Project. (January 2003, State Department photo)
