Museum of Flight Lecture Presents Emergency Volunteer Airlift Operations in the Northwest

. January 9, 2018

On Jan. 20, leaders from Washington state’s Disaster Airlift Response Team (DART) will discuss how local aviation groups, volunteer pilots and aircraft owners will help with relief efforts during natural disasters. FEMA estimates that a major earthquake in the Northwest could devastate the normal transportation infrastructure, while the all-volunteer DART could play a vital role in rescues and the movement of emergency supplies, food and personnel using small aircraft and seaplanes. During the Museum’s lecture, Washington’s DART managers Sky Terry, Alan Barnard and John Crooks will detail DART’s operations and how others can join the team.

The 2 p.m. program is free with admission to the Museum. The presentation is part of the Museum’s InFlight InSight monthly series inspired by aviation and aerospace insiders about all things that fly.
