The military transport plane that left for Australia yesterday (10th) for an emergency airlift of urea is scheduled to return this afternoon.
According to a military official, one Cygnus KC-330, the Air Force’s multi-purpose aerial refueling transport aircraft, is expected to arrive in Korea this evening with 27,000 liters of urea water from Australia.
It is reported that about 20 people, including those who have been vaccinated, were on board the Cygnus.
The amount of urea water that Cygnus brings this time is about 3-4% of the daily usage, so there are voices raising questions about the effectiveness of military transport aircraft.
In this regard, the Ministry of National Defense has stated that the government is negotiating with the number of urea in various areas, and that the Ministry of National Defense is preparing to expedite transportation support.
