Hawai‘i-based Aircraft Aid Haitian Relief

Three Boeing C-17A "Globemaster III"s from the Hawai‘i Air National Guard's 204th AS, and a Lockheed HC-130H "Hercules" from the US Coast Guard Station at Barbers Point are assisting in relief flights in Haiti after last week's earthquake.

The HANG C-17s are leaving HIK today for Charleston, South Carolina to pick up relief supplies that will be air dropped over Haiti.

The USCG C-130 is performing evacuation flights for Haitian-Americans in Haiti to MIA.

Hawai‘i News Now shows 05-5152 (c/n P-152), seen above, as one of the three "Globemasters" departing HIK.
