FOXBORO (CBS) — The New England Patriots have once again put their team plane to good use during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Boeing 767 painted in team colors with “6X Champions” on the side arrived in El Salvador Tuesday to deliver a shipment of 500,000 COVID vaccines to the country.

A government Twitter account showed the plane landing at night and vaccines being unloaded. The communications secretary for El Salvador said the influx of vaccines would be a great help in the country’s fight against COVID.

Just this February, the Patriots used their team plane to fly health care workers to the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, Florida. And last April, the Krafts had the plane fly all the way to China to bring 1.2 million N95 masks to Massachusetts, and the family donated $2 million to help cover the costs of the face coverings.
