Haiti Relief

Norwegian Air Force 1st Lt. Jan Barre Prestbakmo, a loadmaster for the Heavy Airlift Wing out of Papa Air Base, Hungary, gives directions to the pilot as his C-17 transport aircraft backs up in preparation for takeoff from the main airport at Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Jan. 18. The aircraft and multi-national aircrew had just delivered 15 pallets of material to construct a headquarters for aid workers at the airport. The air relief is being delivered in response to a massive earthquake that struck Haiti Jan. 12. This is the first humanitarian assistance operation flown by the Heavy Airlift Wing since it stood up in July 2009. The wing is a multi-national force made up of Airmen from 12 nations.
