JBLM plane on its way to help superstorm relief effort

Joint Base Lewis-McChord —  A C-17 left this Western Washington base early this morning to support the East Coast relief response to Superstorm Sandy.

The aircraft, a C-17 Globemaster III assigned to the 62nd Airlift Wing, will first stop at March Air Reserve Base in southern California to pick up technicians, supplies and equipment — including 69 vehicles belonging to the Southern California Edison utility company.

The aircraft is scheduled to land at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, N.Y., this evening, according to Col. Jeffrey Philippart, 62nd Airlift Wing vice commander.
