It is seen flying over flooded Central Mozambique near the town of Chibuto as it refuels from an MC-130P "Shadow" from the 67th Special Operations Squadron, RAF Mildenhall. The MH-53M Pave Lows were operating from Air Force Base Hoedspruit in South Africa, where they are deployed in support of Operation Atlas Response. Operation Atlas Response was a multi-national humanitarian relief mission helping displaced people in Central and Southern Mozambique that have been devastated by recent floods.
