​Two C-17s and aircrews with the 701st Airlift Squadron recently delivered more than 170,000 pounds of humanitarian aid to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The two aircraft were filled with 32 pallets of food and other supplies provided through the Denton Program, which allows for private organizations to use space on US military aircraft. “Our role in the Denton mission is supporting the delivery of the cargo and supplies,” said Capt. Ed Sutton, a pilot with the 701st AS at JB Charleston, S.C., in a release. “It’s a rewarding experience to be a part of relief efforts to areas like Haiti or anywhere else in the world that may need it.” The April 21 trip was organized by the Haiti Christian Development Project.
