Airmen and C-130s from the 50th Airlift Squadron at Little Rock AFB, Ark., deployed to Southwest Asia on April 28, 2011, just three days after a tornado wreaked devastation on the base. This contingent is the first wave of nearly 20 C-130s and 1,000 airmen slated to leave the base for deployments by early May 2011, according to Little Rock officials. Shown here, the damage to one of Little Rock's C-130s from the tornado.
