Debrief after the 'fog of war' airlift to St. Johns USVI

Hollywood, MD - Pegasus, the 1955 Grumman Albatross flew three missions into St. Thomas with over 13,000 lbs of supplies. She flew 81.9 flight hours with only one minor hydraulic leak, which required a new aircraft part. The crewmembers were extremely proud of the plane and their performance and are looking forward to providing more help in the future. 

In total three missions were flown the first out of Dulles returning to St. Mary's, the second departing from St. Mary's and via San Antonio, Fort Pierce FL to St. Thomas and then return to Fort Pierce to pick up more supplies back to St. Thomas and then returning to St. Mary's late on Sunday afternoon.

The project was self funded by Hollyer with donated supplies under the auspices of www.seacrossings.org, a not-for-profit which desperately needs donations to fund future relief efforts. Visit their Facebook page to make a donation.

Hollyer noted that supplies shipped in to Puerto Rico were vast and the U.S. Virgin Islands really need focussed help and if it takes volunteers to send in the help hats off to them all!! Again all donations welcome. TheBayNet.com will keep readers posted on the next mission.
