Kudos To Canada

On Wednesday the Canadian Defense Forces opened the Jacmel airport for 24-hour operations after clearing debris, installing a lighting system, and setting up a control tower. The local air traffic control is provided by the HMCS Halifax, a frigate, holding station just off the coast.

The 3,300-foot runway can accommodate C-130s and helicopters to reduce the traffic at the Port au Prince airport, which is 30 miles away.

very good! And yeah, Kudos! 😀

I must say, I am impressed by the efforts of all the Nations forces working there. I think they all are doing very well given the situation and circumstances they all have to work under, including the political garbage. *shrug* So, what’s new? 😉

Why say’s the Worlds military’s can’t work together to create, rather than destroy. 🙂

They had to hump a lot of the stuff in from the coast because the road system was trashed. It’s a kilometer of asphalt with a parking lot on one end and no buildings at all.

The road to PaP crosses a river, and I assume they had to brace that to make the field useful.
