Doug Jackson of Operation Airdrop talks about relief flights made by the new organization to hurricane-ravaged areas in Texas.
“We’ve had over 500 flights so far. The response has been overwhelming,” Jackson said. More than 150 aircraft—some from as far away as Virginia, Minnesota, and Mexico—have delivered 250,000 pounds of supplies. Airplanes have ranged from Piper Comanches to a Douglas DC-3. Twenty to 30 flights were anticipated Saturday, he added.
