Fuel movement

This week we have a pretty big mission. We're going to provide helicopter airlift to the President of Honduras, the American Ambassador and a variety of other dignitaries. We'll be flying out to the eastern part of Honduras, and it's going to be pretty far. There isn't a lot in eastern Honduras, especially important... there are no refueling locations. Last week, we took 2 blivets of fuel to where we're flying so we can refuel ourselves. This is a picture of the helicopter sling-loaded with 2 blivets (each carries about 1,000 lbs of fuel I think). This is a CH-47. I thought it was a cool picture!

My job is to monitor the movement and coordinate details for missions like these.
