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

SOMEHWERE OVER HONDURAS -- Air Force Reserve Staff Sgt. Michael Culp, a loadmaster assigned to the 773rd Airlift Squadron, uses Night Vision Goggles (NVGs) as he looks out the crew door of a C-130H Hercules tactical cargo transport aircraft on an airlift mission, January 17, in support of relief efforts in the aftermath of an earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. Sergeant Culp is among a 12-person crew aboard the C-130H assigned to the 910th Airlift Wing, based out of Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, bound for Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras to pick up cargo in support of the massive international effort to aid the people of the stricken island nation. He is aiding the flight crew as they prepare to land using NVGs at the air base in Honduras. 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.
