Emergency Hurricane Maria Relief Aid Cargo Hauling

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

I am sure all of you would recall the terrible Category 5 Hurricane Maria on 18 September 2017 hit Dominica which suffered a direct landfall with damage to 90% of the buildings on the island with infrastructure left in ruins which propelled many many airlines to fly relief aid supplies neighboring islands to be loaded on ferry boats to Dominica or small planes flying directly to that island's airport which had 7/8 of runway intact and 1/8 being washed out.

Presenting emergency relief aid flight from TTPP Piarco International Airport located 19 miles east of downtown Port of Spain in Trindad to TDPD Douglas–Charles Airport ormerly known as Melville Hall Airport located on the northeast coast of Dominica 2 miles northwest of Marigot and one hour away from the second largest city Portsmouth.

Full loaded with emergency relief aid supplies taxing to short of runway 10

Yes, on a noble mission...the classic DC-9. I love the smallest -10, had not seen it for a while, looks stocky and powerful!
