Oil Spill Support Ongoing

Air Force Reservists from the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown ARS, Ohio, continue to operate two specially modified C-130H aircraft from Stennis, Miss., to spray dispersing agent on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The Tampa Tribune reported Monday that these two aircraft were scheduled for 10 flights that day. Sorties flown between May 1, the start of these operations, and May 9 had distributed 58,036 gallons of dispersant over 11,573 acres of water, according to the newspaper, citing a US Northern Command official.
