The C-17 Globemaster aircraft left Dover Air Force Base in Delaware around 11:18 am (1518 GMT) and is expected to land in Nepal on Monday afternoon, the US military said. “The aircraft is transporting nearly 70 personnel including a USAID Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), the Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue team and several journalists, along with 45 square tons of cargo,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said. A total of 26 US military personnel and a C-130 transport plane are currently in Nepal, where they had been due to take part in a previously scheduled training exercise.
