Airlift to Haiti – Day 2


Rich Pickett is SDSU’s CIO and a licensed pilot for 32 years. He is volunteering his time to fly relief flights to earthquake ravaged Haiti and will be sharing his experiences here as often as he is able …

We made it to Jacmel – 800 miles from Ft. Lauderdale. Todd and I flew down with passengers and cargo. We obtained permission to fly over Port Au Prince.  The devastation is hard to describe. The entire area is flattened, then others were apparently untouched. The hospital here was flattened. And we heard there were over 30 amputations of childrens’ limbs in a short amount of time.  We will pick up some people to return to Florida.
