About 50 bags containing vital supplies for the Ukrainian refugees were flown out of the Aurora Municipal Airport in a twin-prop plane on Tuesday morning.

That plane was provided by local private aviation company, revv aviation, which is part of Peru-based CL Enterprises.

Volunteers gathered at the airport in Sugar Grove to load the heavy black canvas bags into the plane’s fuselage as Rene Koehler Berger with Crisis Response International of Blue Ridge, Virginia, described the contents.

“The majority is mostly medical, including combat gear, solar mylar blankets, medical boots, tourniquets, lanterns with chargers and crutches,” Koehler Berger said.

revv aviation CEO Guy Lieser and its parent company CL Enterprises CEO Peter Limberger were on-hand, along with other officials for Tuesday’s loading.

The King Air, which was retrofitted to accommodate all the donations, took off for JFK Airport in New York City, where it will be transferred to an international flight to Poland. The supplies are heading to a shelter house south of Krakow, Poland.

“Rene has undertaken an incredible fete with many people from the area doing their part to help refugees in their excruciating time of need,” Lieser said. “Our role to get the donations to New York is one way, in which our CLE companies can share in this global humanitarian gesture.”

Approximately 50 bags of supplies that include toiletries, combat gear that includes tourniquets, medical supplies and crutches are lined up and will be packed a plane’s fuselage (not plane pictured) and will then be flown to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City then on to Poland for the Ukrainian refugees. (Mark Welsh mwelsh@dailyherald.com/Daily Herald)
