ABDF AIRWING responded to a call for emergency transport of a female patient in Barbuda who was experiencing low oxygen conditions.

The two-man flight crew departed Antigua on ALPHA-1, with ABDF’s On Duty Medic, to render assistance.

On arrival in Barbuda the patient was quickly loaded onto the aircraft.

She was accompanied by her son who also boarded the flight.

The entire operation to and from Barbuda took approximately one hour.

Since its commissioning Alpha-1 has flown and completed over 15 different missions with total success.

The greater of this number being medevacs from the sister isle.

  1. Great Job colleagues.

    I hope we get another aircraft soon. Hopefully this one will come with the autopilot system 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.

  2. Without a vision the people perish. Would anyone have thought that this airline would have come to such beneficial use? I certainly didn’t.
    Our PM is a real visionary.
    Thank God for him. And pray that he may lead us for many more years to come.
    Because without his vision we would surely perish.
