Air Force conducts around clock ops to deliver storm relief

Airmen and transport aircraft from across the nation converged at March Air Reserve Base, Calif. Nov. 1 to begin part of the Air Force’s movement of relief supplies and equipment to the beleaguered areas of New York and New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Crews from 12 active-duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command bases descended upon March ARB to pick up passengers, equipment and supplies to deliver to Stewart Air National Guard Base, N.Y.

The passengers and 632 short tons of cargo, including 69 vehicles belonging to the Southern California Edison utility company, will assist in restoring power and providing humanitarian assistance to the stricken region.

The 452nd Air Mobility Wing, March ARB, is providing three C-17 Globemaster IIIs and dozens of aircrews for the around-the-clock operations. The wing is also providing the ground support — aerial porters and airlift controllers — to process and load cargo.

“I am extremely proud of our aerial porters, logistics planners, aircrews, and airlift controllers,” said Col. Samuel Mahaney, 452nd AMW commander. “Our Citizen Airmen, members of the Air Force Reserve, have responded gallantly to this national crisis. They are working at the highest operations tempo to ensure the delivery of this essential equipment in the fastest possible time.”
