Flood rescue efforts bring Turkish choppers on improvised landing pads
On Jul. 19, heavy flood and landslides in Turkey’s southern Hatay city caused 5 dead and 12 wounded.
The collapse of a bridge over the local highway closed the area by land transport.
As a consequence, the Turkish Ministry of Defense dispatched a Cougar and a Sikorsky S-70 helicopter from Incirlik Air Base to the region, to provide search and rescue and medical evacuation missions.
