More Pictures of What I Saw in Florida

I see I have been getting a lot of hits here recently.  I understand Dave Ruhf has posted a link to here on his Facebook page.  Thanks to Dave and to all of you who are visiting from his link.  As some of you know, I gave up on FB and social media in general back in 2012 or so.  I’ve found I am a lot more productive and less stressed as a result!

My best wishes to you all!

Again, please consider a donation to Aerobridge, the charity that organized the effort I took part in in Florida.  They are continuing the good work in the Caribbean, particularly in the VI and Puerto Rico.

Also, please consider Patient Airlift Services and Angel Flight East, two other worthy aviation related charities that provide medical and compassion flights to patients and their families who must travel long distances for medical treatment, but for financial or medical reasons, cannot travel via commercial airline.

Pictures from the Aerobridge Relief Effort in Florida

Some pictures from the Hurricane Irma relief efforts organized by Aerobridge.  Over the last two weeks, Aerobridge has been an important part of the relief effort following Hurricane Irma, delivering supplies to affected people throughout South Florida, and especially to hard-to-reach areas in the Florida Keys.

An article at AOPA shows how a small private airstrip in the Florida Keys was used to supply people in need following the storm.

Please consider supporting Aerobridge, a worthy charity effort organizing pilots and airplanes to deliver supplies and medicines, and provide transport to people in need in the wake of natural disasters.
