Refurbished plane destined for medical relief work
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Church of Chattanooga has had a long-standing tie to the organization 'Mission Aviation Fellowship,' with its pastor serving as an officer.
Sunday, donors and supports of 'MAF were able to get an up close look at the latest plane to join its fleet.
Two years ago the Cessna Grand Caravan was nearly destroyed by a tornado.
MAF bought the plane and was able to refurbish the $2 million aircraft.
In the coming weeks it will be heading to the east Congo to deliver much-needed supplies.
"This aircraft is going to do so many amazing things. It's going to help fly in medical supplies, medical teams, missionaries and provide relief in an area that's so torn by civil war and disease and so many horrible things, but this aircraft is going to bring hope and joy to people in a very desperate situation," says Pastor Morty Lloyd.
This plane is just one of more than 100 planes that are a part of the MAF fleet.
