Local airmen from Travis Air Force return from Haiti
TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, CA (KGO) -- Sixteen members of a Travis Air Force Based Emergency Response Wing are back home after being one of the first responders to the Haitian relief effort.
Because of overcrowding at Haiti's Port-au-Prince airport, they were deployed to the Dominican Republic just hours after the quake.
The unit managed airport operations and air traffic, helping ferry more than one million tons of supplies into Haiti.
Wing members are trained to load and depart to locations worldwide in less than 12 hours after receiving a call.
