Ceremony to Deliver Small Ambulance Airplane for Emergency Transport on Remote Islands To be used by Okinawa-based NGO MESH Support

A ceremony was held at Naha Airport (Okinawa Prefecture) on September 28 to deliver a small airplane to MESH Support, an NGO that uses aircraft to support medical services. The airplane was purchased with a 166 million yen grant provided by The Nippon Foundation, and will go into use from October 1.
