Vintage Warbirds Fly Relief Missions To Gulf Coast
On display for years as memorabilia of wars gone by, at least
two warbirds from the Commemorative Air Force have been pressed
into service on relief missions to the hurricane-ravaged Gulf
Aero-News reader Randall Stevens reports the CAF is flying
missions into Slidell, LA, with an A-26B and a C-47.
The aircraft are carrying much-needed fuel as on-the-ground
relief forces are running out of necessities and their generators
are running out of gas. Stevens reports the CAF flights are
bringing in perishibles as well.
Thanks for the information, Randall! If you have news of
aviation's contributions to providing relief on the Gulf Coast,
