Following Irene to the Bahamas
Larry Morris helps unload tarps and water (a.k.a. "liquid gold") from his Bonanza at MYEM, (Governor's Harbour Airport) in Eleuthera a few days after Hurricane Irene passed through. This was one of over 40 relief missions flown by volunteer pilots for Bahamas Methodist Habitat — the kind of assistance that only GA can provide. We flew from JQF (in Concord, North Carolina) to FXE, over to MYEM, and back to JQF in the same day.
Picture taken with Nikon D90, 18-200 at 18mm; no manipulation.
