A NATO C-17 aircraft will be made available on Sunday for the transfer abroad of injured in Colectiv club fire, National Defence Minister Mircea Dusa told B1 TV private television broadcaster.
“Yesterday we requested such an aircraft be put at our disposal. The aircraft will probably arrive around 19,00. It is a higher capacity aircraft, it is a four turbo jet engine aircraft. If those with the Department for Emergency Situations decide to send injured to London, Norway and Finland, we can operate the flights with this aircraft a lot faster. (…) The aircraft is currently in Europe. Our colleagues of NATO promised us that at 19,00 it will be in Bucharest, not at Base 90, but on another hardstand. The base doesn’t allow for the C17 aircraft landing, but the C17 always lands on the hardstand of the civil airport. During the flight, the injured will be assisted by doctors with the Mobile Emergency Service for Resuscitation and Extrication Service [SMURD] and the National Defence Ministry,” Dusa said.
He pointed out that the aircraft is put at the disposal of the countries involved in a NATO programme.
Mircea Dusa also said that the National Defence Ministry will put at the disposal of the families of the deceased burial places in Ghencea 3 military cemetery.
“We noticed that there are relatives who haven’t found burial places for the young people who died. We provide burial places free of charge in MApN’s Ghencea 3 cemetery,” the National Defence Minister said.
