Boeing MD-10 Transformed into a Flying Eye Hospital

Dec 11, 2017 - 9:45 PM

Orbis International has been working since 1982 to improve eye care for the 89 percent of visually impaired people who live in low- and middle-income countries. The non-profit organization launched its third-generation Flying Eye Hospital in 2016 to train local surgeons to better care for their patients while promoting eye care and global health.

Donated by FedEx, Orbis’s MD-10 freighter has been gutted and refurbished with all the equipment need to train local teams and complete eye exams and surgeries. Follow BJT as we take a tour of this incredibly unique aircraft.
