Military Transports 39 Tons of Infant Formula From Europe

A US Air Force transport plane was called into service on May 22 to deliver 39 tons (78,000 pounds) of baby formula from Europe, part of White House efforts to stanch a domestic supply shortage.

This video, released by the US military, shows personnel offloading the C-17 Globemaster III at Indianapolis International Airport on Sunday. The shipment was the first to be sent under “Operation Fly Formula,” which the Biden Administration outlined last week. Alongside the importation plan, the White House also involved the Defense Production Act to prioritize the manufacturing of baby formula in the US. Credit: US Air Force via Storyful
