C-130 Photo of the Week 2017-09-25

The tail flash of a specially modified Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules aircraft, assigned to the 910th Airlift Wing based at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, is clearly visible as it is accented by the setting sun over the Kelly Field Annex here, Sept. 19, 2017. The aircraft, the 910th’s flagship, is a backup to three C-130s temporarily based at Kelly Field to conduct mosquito control aerial spray applications over areas of eastern Texas devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Since operations began, this special mission has treated more than 2.3 million acres at the direction of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to assist in recovery efforts by helping contain the significant increase in pest insects caused by large amounts of standing, stagnant water. The 910th Airlift Wing operates the Department of Defense’s only aerial spray capability to control pest insect populations, eliminate undesired and invasive vegetation and disperse oil spills in large bodies of water.
