Airmen and reservists at the 910th Air Reserve Station in Vienna were busy Friday loading a school bus onto a cargo plane destined for Haiti.

The mission is part of the Denton Program which makes humanitarian aid missions to different parts of the world.

The cargo loaded Friday was part of a mission project through Hope for Haiti, based out of Middlefield, Ohio.

“They support the orphanages down there and this bus will get those kids in the orphanages to their schools,” said Sr. Master Sgt. Kevin Massie. “Sometimes they don’t go to school unless they have transportation.”

Crews from the 910th and Dover Air Force Base in Delaware prepared the C-5 aircraft for the transport. Massie said driving the bus onto the airplane took some planning and preparation.

“The donor provided approach shoring to reduce those angles so it would not hit the airplane as it was driving on,” said Massie.

The mission is about more than just getting much needed supplies to devastated parts of the world. It also helps the reservists stay on top of their game in the event they are deployed.

“They base these missions around training so these air crews have to keep their currency and get trained and tested every so often,” said Massie.

This is the third mission of the Denton Program flown out of the 910th this year.
