Airport to allow humanitarian flights

Wednesday 11:10 a.m.

KENNER (AP) - The New Orleans International Airport has reopened to allow humanitarian flights in and out, officials said Wednesday.

The flights at Louis Armstrong International Airport will take place only during daylight hours. The airport gave no indication of when commercial flights might resume.

Officials said the airport has no significant airfield damage and had no standing water in aircraft movement areas. The airport sustained damage to its roofs, hangars and fencing, officials said.
Great news, now please someone tell me how I can help get needed supplies delivered! Angel Flight East e-mailed us today, and I told them I'd drop everything to take whatever is needed to people in need. It's a bit hard to fathom that MSY survived the flooding, because it's basically surrounded on three sides by water: on the north by Lake Pontchartain, the south by the Mississippi River, and by swampland on the west, as this Google Maps photo shows:

The TFR in place over the New Orleans area is interesting, as they are using airborne surveillance -- callsign: "Omaha 44" -- to provide limited ATC services (flight advisories only). That's surely because there's no power at the airport, so the tower won't be in operation. The size of the TFR is huge, basically the entire metopolitan area of the East Bank:

Let's hope that Angel Flight can interface with the Red Cross or some other agency so that able and willing pilots (like the IFR Pilot) can do something to help. Sitting here 1500 miles away, watching it all on TV, just plain sucks.

Try contacting Feed The Children. They are taking truckloads there as we speak, but maybe they could use some air support, too.
We are doing a radiothon of sorts for them.
