Canada’s C-130s to the Rescue – “Operation Preserve” August to December 1991

From Larry Milberry

Good day, Pierre, and here’s a heads-up for my new blog posting. The main item ( covers my 1991 adventures in the Horn of Africa. Based at Djibouti with Air Transport Group, I had a front row seat observing and photographing Canada’s humanitarian relief involvement during this period of Ethiopian drought – “Operation Preserve”. For several months from Djibouti, Canada’s C-130 Hercules were rushing food aid into desperate areas of Ethiopia. You’ll find some other interesting news today, including about the excellent tank and armour museum at Oshawa.

All the best … Larry
