908th Airlift Wing transports humanitarian cargo

Chief Master Sgt. Lynn Whited drives a tractor into a 908th Airlift Wing C-130 aircraft Monday that is headed for the Dominican Republic. A member of the 908th’s 25th Aerial Port Squadron, Chief Whited loaded the tractor and several other items acquired by Daystar Baptist Missions to be used for humanitarian relief in the Dominican Republic. Lt. Col. Jerry Lobb, 908th public affairs officer, said the cargo was being flown “space available” in accordance with the 1985 Denton Amendment, named after U.S. Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton of Alabama. The Denton Amendment allows nonprofit, charitable organizations access to unused cargo space on Air Force aircraft for humanitarian aid, Colonel Lobb said. He added transportation of the cargo is a “by-product” of mission training. (U.S. Air Force photo/Lt. Col. Jerry Lobb)
