    The Puerto Rico National Guard Army Aviation Support Facility (AASF) together with Georgia Army National Guard’s Detachment 1, Bravo Company, 1-169th General Support Aviation Battalion, take to the air to transport high-voltage transmission towers parts to an assembly location in Salinas, Puerto Rico, where civilian contractors will configure them to be utilized in the reconstruction of the electrical grid in the Island after Hurricane María, October 26. The two Chinook helicopters from the 169th prove to be the most efficient work-horse support vehicles for this mission by effortlessly lifting and transporting through the air all heavy sections needed to assemble and replace seven high-voltage transmission towers downed by the hurricane in just a day. The same mission would have taken several days of coordination and then some more in time consuming execution if it was to be carried out by road vehicles.
