910th aircraft and crew delivers personnel and cargo to Haiti for relief effort

SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras -- Air Force Reserve Master Sgt. Steve Gonzales, a crew chief assigned to the 910th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron and Staff Sgt. Michael Culp, a loadmaster assigned to the 773rd Airlift Squadron, work together to tighten a cargo strap securing a pallet to the rear cargo deck of a C-130H Hercules tactical cargo transport aircraft, assigned to the 910th Airlift Wing, on the cargo ramp here, January 17. Sergeants Gonzales and Culp are part of a 12-person crew from the 910th, based at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, scheduled to deliver the pallet, a HUMVEE military vehicle, a trailer and supplies along with a group of 19 U.S. Military medical personnel to Port-au-Prince International Airport, Haiti as part of the relief effort to aid the people of the stricken island nation in the aftermath of the massive earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas last week. The 910th currently has three aircraft, crews of more than 30 personnel flying relief effort missions and a myriad of Citizen Airmen working at YARS to provide home station support to the crews. The 910th Airlift Wing stands ready to provide airlift capabilities to the massive humanitarian effort as long as needed by mission requirements.
