1-228th Aviation Regiment supports firefighting efforts on the North coast of Honduras
Two U.S. Army CH-47 Chinooks depart Soto Cano Air Base in support of firefighting efforts on the North coast of Honduras, Mar. 31, 2016, after Juan Orlando Hernandez, President of Honduras, sent a request for support to the U.S. Ambassador in Honduras. The helicopters provided assistance to the Honduran Air Force, Army and Fire Department, with a refillable, water carrying Bambi Bucket system and hoist capability to help retrieve people who may come under harm’s way on the ground.
