During the flight from a staging base in the Middle East, the woman went into labour and began to experience complications, the US Air Force said.
The mother reportedly went into labor and started having complications during the flight. The aircraft commander then “decided to descend in altitude to increase air pressure in the aircraft, which helped stabilize and save the mother’s life,” according to Air Mobility Command.
Upon landing, the airmen from the medical group delivered the child in the cargo bay of the plane.
“The baby girl and mother were transported to a nearby medical facility and are in good condition,” Air Mobility Command wrote in a tweet.
