Two C-130s from Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station left the base shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday.
We’re told the military plane took off from Niagara Falls with personnel on board and will make a stop in South Carolina to pick up supplies and cargo before continuing on its way to earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
This is a joint operation by the 107th Airlift Wing and the 914th Airlift Wing – representing both the Army National Guard and the Air Force Reserve.
Right now, it is scheduled to be a five day mission to provide logistical support and supplies to the 10,000 or so U.S. troops on the ground in Haiti.
