Fort Worth crew to fly Ebola supplies to Liberia

Summer Flight Forecast

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A crew of six people is headed from Fort Worth to Liberia to deliver medical supplies for workers fighting the Ebola outbreak there. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the crew plans to leave the city’s Alliance Airport Tuesday and stop in New York to pick up more supplies on its way to Monrovia.

The plane will be carrying rubber gloves, goggles and other supplies in critical demand during an outbreak that has killed more than 1,400 people. Pilot Mick Waldrop of Fort Worth-based ATX Air Services said he’s somewhat concerned for his own health and that of the crew, but said he was confident that they would be safe. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
