The 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale AFB, Calif., dispatched one of its U-2 reconnaissance aircraft to Robins AFB, Ga., on Jan. 29, 2010, to support the humanitarian-assistance mission in Haiti. Operating temporarily from Robins, the high-flying aircraft will take high-quality, broad-area overhead imagery of the Caribbean nation, which was devastated by a hurricane on Jan. 12, 2010. These images will make it easier to coordinate and prioritize the relief activities across the ravaged nation. Here, the U-2 takes off from Beale en route to Robins.
