Youngstown C-130 over Louisiana
The Department of Defense tasks the Air Force Reserve's 910th Airlift Wing, Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, to maintain an aerial spray capability. The 910th is home to the only full-time, fixed-wing aerial spray unit within the Department of Defense.

The Aerial Spray Squadron at Youngstown ARS conducts various aerial spray missions throughout the year at various military installations and their surrounding communities using four specially-modified C-130H aircraft and Modular Aerial Spray Systems (MASS).

The MASS systems and four of our specially-modified C-130H aircraft are used to spray biting insects such as mosquitoes, biting midges and filth flies.  The systems are also used to control vegetation growth on military bombing ranges and to disperse oil spills.

The Aerial Spray Squadron at Youngstown may be contacted by calling 330-609-1965 or 1412 or 330-609-1616 (fax).
