Air Force Reserve Squadron Combats Insect Infestation in Wake of Hurricanes

U.S. Air Force 757th Airlift Squadron Air Force Lt. Col. John Williams, commander of the 757th Airlift Squadron, along with Air Force Maj. Karl Haagsma and Air Force Senior Master Sgt. John Daniels spoke with bloggers about aerial spray missions and recent support to areas impacted by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. “Our aircraft are specially equipped,” Williams said. “We responded to the governor’s request through (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to spray and control the growing mosquito and fly population in the aftermaths of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.”

On the call with us were Chuck Simmins of America's North Shore Journal and Scott Malensek of Flopping Aces.
