Three Canadian Forces transport aircraft have participated in humanitarian-relief efforts to help residents of the US Gulf Coast prepare for Hurricane Gustav, which made landfall Sept. 1, 2008, and deal with its aftermath. Here, one can see the back end of a Canadian CC-177 (Canada’s version of the C-17) as the aircraft sits at Lake Front Airport, New Orleans, ready to evacuate New Orleans resident prior to Gustav’s arrival, Aug. 31, 2008.
