Royal Canadian Air Force traffic technicians from 2 Air Movements Squadron, 8 Wing Trenton, Ont., and loadmasters from 429 Transport Squadron, 8 Wing Trenton, Ont., wasted no time getting to work as part of Air Task Force Mali, Canada’s contribution to the French efforts to stabilize the African country of Mali.

The personnel have been preparing loads for delivery to Bamako, Mali.

A Canadian Armed Forces CC-177 Globemaster III arrived in Bamako, Mali, on Jan. 17 carrying a French military light armoured vehicle, medical supplies and ammunition.

On Jan., 4, following a request from the French government, the Canadian Government committed one RCAF CC-177 transport aircraft, in a non-combat role, to transport equipment into the Malian capital of Bamako.

The French forces have begun a mission to stabilize the security situation in Mali in response to United Nations Security Council resolution 2085.
