Quote:The Air Force is honoring 910th Airlift Wing in Vienna for spraying Corexit according to Air Force Reserve Command's announcement Friday, reported by the Tribune Chronicle that calls the event a last year's incident and refers to it at an "oil spill."

The 910th is being honored with the ''Air Force Outstanding Unit Award'' recognizing the airlift wing for outstanding achievement from April 28 to June 4, 2010, when it sent two specially equipped C-130H aircraft and the associated personnel and support crew to Stennis International Airport in Mississippi to aid in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill cleanup efforts.

While "deployed to the Gulf Coast, the aircrews flew 92 sorties and sprayed 30,000 acres with nearly 149,000 gallons of dispersant."

I read the US army (navy, airforce) were buying all the gulf seafood nobody else would. The 910th airlift wing is eating that dispersant. sad2.gif
