World Aid Arrives in Mobile

By  | 

The massive Airbus Beluga aircraft with 22 tons of hurricane relief supplies from the United Kingdom and France landed Thursday morning at Mobile.

From Mobile, supplies will be delivered to hurricane victims in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

The aircraft, called the Beluga because of its whale-like shape, normally carries aircraft parts from Airbus factories across Europe to the assembly plants in Toulouse and Hamburg.

It was also used to deliver supplies to tsunami victims in east Asia.
